Moeginosato' Trekking Course
Tsunan Town
Transport yourself to a world where literary writers from the Edo period and Suzuki Bokushi viewed Akiyamago Village.
Akiyamago Village was known as an area where the defeated 'Heike' families fled, and is also one of Japan's top 100 unexplored regions. About 180 years ago, an Edo period literary author famous for writing 'Hokuetsuseppu', Suzuki Bokushi visited the land. He wrote "Akiyama Kikou", summarizing the beautiful nature and rare manners and customs. Akiyama Village was first known to the world through this book. Bokushi wrote in his book Akiyama Kikou, "Like a sensation of visiting Shangri-la, Akiyama must be visited". During the season of fresh verdure and autumn colors,this place is a mecca for many visitors and amateur photographers.
