Gunma Prefecture’s Mt. Myogi (1,104 m) is characterized by its craggy, unusual rock formations. It attracts many visitors; one of its routes is gentle enough for most people, but it’s middle route offers a challenge to even advanced and experienced hikers. Its jagged rocks and rugged landscape are especially beautiful in autumn, when they are covered in vivid fall foliage. Together with Mt. Akagi and Mt. Haruna, it is one of Gunma’s three famous peaks. The nearby Sakura no Sato Park is home to 5,000 cherry trees of 45 species. When they bloom in mid-April, visitors can view beautiful blossoms at the trailhead, and the trees of Sakura no Sato from above, on the trail.
