    Stroll to Yutagami

    Directly behind Yutagami Hot Spring is Mt. Gomado-yama. Park your car and take a look around. (Spring) Walk together along the mountain path. It's getting warm, so take a look at the wild flowers and mountain plants!! (Summer) Going up Mt. Gomado-yama in June you'll find a festival of hygrandeas. Head towards the summit of the mountain, surrounded by the greenery. Enjoy the 30,000 blossoming fresh hygrandeas spreading from the roadside to the summit!! After the rainy season, it might start getting a little hot. Check in earlier!!
