Aizuwakamatsu in Fukushima Prefecture

The Aizu-kogen Highlands is located in the southwestern part of Fukushima Prefecture. It is a resort area dotted with nature parks, leisure facilities, and hot springs nestled along the crystal clear Tadami-gawa River, which flows through the Oku-Aizu area, and its tributaries, the Ina-gawa and Hinoe-mata-gawa rivers. Tourists flock to this popular resort area to enjoy outdoor activities all year round, including sightseeing in the scenic Oze area, fishing in mountain streams from spring to fall, as well as skiing in winter.The Hinoe-mata-mura Village is famous for the Oze ponds and meadows, legends about fleeing Heike warriors, and the Hinoe-mata Kabuki (a form of traditional Japanese theater) that has been passed down from generation to generation since the Edo Period and is performed as a dedicatory kabuki play a few times a year even now. Buckwheat for use in soba noodles is widely cultivated, and every year in late fall the Shin-Soba-matsuri Festival (New Soba Noodle Festival) is held at the Oze-no-Sato Exchange Center to celebrate the harvest of the buckwheat crop. The village has a number of facilities, including a hot spring with an abundant supply of hot water, and a swimming pool. A sauna is also available, which visitors may use while wearing swimsuits.
