Shirakami Sanchi
Aomori is a rich prefecture in nature, and one of the famous tourist sites is the Shirakami Sanchi. It is the mysterious virgin beech forest, which is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
You can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Shirakami Sanchi in all seasons. However, spring is one of the recommended visiting seasons, because you can see the trees that green leaves come back. The waterfall is also worth to see, which is powerfully flowing because of the volume of water by the melting snow.
