the whole mountainous areas is very scenic. Our taxi driver took us around and the drive was excellent. We did not hike, as we are not the adventurous type. It is my 2nd trip to visit this place during winter and it still love its freezing cold scenery.

We visited this park on the 1st week of Oct. The foliage was great as the leaves were turning colour. Check the weather as it can be sunny one day and very cloudy the next. For accommodation, my suggestion is to stay one day at Sounkyo Spa area. The hotels are comparatively quite expensive and the lower rated ones reeked... More

Stayed 2 nights at Sounkyo. Enjoy hiking to Mt. Kurodake. It's about an hour up to hill. The scenery is awesome! It is a good exercise too for all ages. Really worth it for those love hiking and natural, specially mountain.

This is one of the most wild and natural places in all of Japan. Rugged mountains, beautiful clear rivers and some of the only untouched nature left on the very crowded archipelago of Japan. While the natural elements are here for a fantastic National Park, I expect more in terms of infrastructure and park ranger activity in line with those... More

Stoping in Sounkyo, we took the ropeway, then the lift, and then walked to the top of Kurodake. It is a one hour path, with a big slope but not so hard. The path is very nice with rocks and the top gives a very good views. Perfect.

This area has lots to offer- from Sounkyo Ropeway to view panaromic view of the mountain to twin waterfalls such as Milky Way waterfall and Shooting stars waterfall. My group enjoyed the special pumpkin ice-cream and yubari melon ice cream at one of the stalls in front of the waterfalls. We stayed at Mombetsu Prince Hotel which is just 5... More

One of the most amazing mountain i have ever visited in my life, where there are several waterfall around the mountain such as Ryusei-no taki and Ginga-no Taki which is simply amazing. Make sure you check the weather before going there, because even when summer have fully come, the air around the mountain still a cool breeze and the water... More
