奥入瀬 a mountain stream, the only outlet of 十和田湖. In autumn, the trail alongside the stream that stretches from Ishigedo to Nenoguchi burns, with flames that bedazzles. Yellow, orange, brown and green of the trees burned deep into my retina.  If Autumn is about falling leaves, Oirase stream's Autumn is about fire, water and earth. Two points of departure, Aomori...

If you are a naturalism, I will suggest Oirase Stream to you. It is an extend of Lake Towade in Aomori. Take 2 hours and 15 minutes bus from Morioka. Those JR pass holders are free for ride (although there is only 1 free schedule a day). Last time I stayed at Kokuminsyukusya Tawadako-Onsen, cost 6,765 yen for 1 night... More
