Its stunningly beautiful nature.
Zao is a place where one can fully experience the splendor of nature. All of your five senses can experience the fresh air, the changing of the four seasons, the comfort of the sunlight filtering through the leaves of the Beech Tree forest and more. The ropeway and lift allow visitors a bird eye view of Zao.
Dear Mt. Zao.
Zao seems far away. However if you use the Yamagata bullet train, it takes about 3 hours to get there from Tokyo. In only three hours you can trek through Zao, which even today has barely been touched by human hands. There are beginner all the way to advanced trekking courses. From the young all the way to seniors, Mt. Zao is a popular travel destination.
Hot Springs and healing.
Upon returning from a days trek, hot springs await. Please restore your energy after a hard days trek at the Zao Hot Springs as you spend a relaxing time in the countryside. At night the stars glitter in the night sky above the hot spring town, while in the morning the chirping of small birds can be heard.
