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.
The mountain opens at the end of April.
There are trekking courses to Anmon-no-taki (a waterfall) and the Lake Juniko. They also offer some winter courses, and many tourists enjoy.
Why don’t you visit and experience the nature of the World Heritage Site, Shirakami Sanchi?
