Walk through one of Japan's largest black pine groves.
Kaze no Matsubara Forest
The black pine trees of Kaze no Matsubara were originally planted during the Edo period for the purpose of erosion control. Sprawling 14 km north-to-south, it is considered to be one of Japan’s largest black pine groves.
With walking paths, resting spaces, and an athletic field, this forest is a popular relaxation place among locals. Visitors can also rent a bicycle at the Sun Wood Noshiro Information Center, and enjoy cycling through the seven million pine trees.
