Iwate | A Carpet of Red Blankets Mt. Mitsuishi

A Vivid Carpet of Red Blankets Mt. Mitsuishi

Mt. Mitsuishi is a peak located in Tohoku’s Hachimantai City, just two hours by bullet train and 90 minutes by bus out from Tokyo. Autumn starts early here, with vibrant fall colors on display as early as mid-September. The Mitsuishi Course trail is well-suited to intermediate trekkers, and there are also local guides available to help. What awaits you at the top is a lush carpet of autumn red blanketing the landscape as far as the eye can see.  It’s a gorgeous view that can only be appreciated fully after a day out on the trail!  Usher in the fall with some of the most refreshing scenery the season has to offer!
