A forest in a traditional mountain village landscape with an abundant feeling of nature


Mebuki-no-Mori (Budding Tree Forest) is a forest in the pastoral mountain landscape surrounding Nagatani Pond. As visitors walk through the forest, they can enjoy nature in all four seasons: blooming azaleas in spring, sunshine streaming through the leaves in summer, colored maple leaves in autumn and waterfowl in winter. One lap around the forest is about 1.2 km, which makes for about a 30 minute walk.
