Zao, Yamagata

Zao, located on the Yamagata-Miyagi prefectural border, is a mountain park centered in the Zao Mountain Range. You can enjoy the beauty of nature there, when you visit locations such as the mysterious Okama crater lake, also known as Goshiki-numa (five-color marsh). It is known for its varying water colors which can change several times a day. Also well known is the Zao Shizen-shokubutsu-en (botanical garden), a treasure house of alpine plants. Aboard the ropeway car, you can take a bird's eye view of the whole Yamagata Basin, or enjoy the night view and the starry sky from a lodge or inn.
If you prefer heat to cold, the Zao-onsen Hot Spring at the mouth of Zao National Park is highly recommended. It has long been known as one of the best hot springs to enjoy open-air baths and public hot baths, one of which is a large open-air bath that can accommodate 200 people at a time! As for dining, you can taste dishes unique to this region such as Mongolian barbecue, a pheasant dish called 'Shinzan-nabe' (hot pot), a char dish, and boiled taro.
