Mountain roads open in Fujisato town!

Everyday is beginning to feel a little warmer and much of the snow has melted. Route 317 which goes through Fujisato town and onto Aomori prefecture is now partially open.

Dairakyo valley, Dakedai forest, and Mt. Fujisato-Komagatake (although a little snowy) are now ALL accessible! For those currently in Akita, enjoy a scenic and relaxing drive through the northern countryside.

The second gate, which will give access to the rest of Route 317 leading into Aomori prefecture will open on May 29.

Hiking Mt. Fujisato-Komagatake. Parts of the trail have wooden walkways. Unfortunately, the snow stopped us from reaching the summit.
Relaxing by the river next to the Kurumidai camping ground.

This red bridge stands out against the backdrop of lush green. Walk to the middle to see Dairakyo valley and the crystal blue water.
