Yuzawa - the natural paradise in the south of Akita
In the south of Akita Prefecture on Honshū - the main island of Japan - lies the city of Yuzawa. The city is located southeast of Akita and north of Yamagata in a wide valley at the foot of the Ōu Mountains. Due to the cold and snowy winter months, the region is especially popular with winter sports tourists!
But also during the summer months the region around Yuzawa has a lot to offer: Hiking, climbing and the Fuji Rock Festival are just a few highlights during the warm months.
Yuzawa is also well connected to the public transportation network. The hot spring town is about 180 kilometers (about a 3.5-hour train ride) from central Tokyo and is ideally accessible by bus and car. Public transportation also runs to Naeba during the days of the Fuji Rock Festival, where the rock festival is held.
As a traditional hot spring town, Yuzawa offers excellent hotels and accommodations. You can choose from a wide range of charming, traditional mountain hotels as well as luxurious mountain resorts. In the city you will also find numerous restaurants and bars where you can enjoy regional specialties.
