"The power spot of Nishiwaga! 》 Beech and Katsura giant tree tour [early June-early November]
In the past, cattle were grazing and charcoal-burning was done, so there is almost no undergrowth and it is an easy-to-walk forest.
In this forest, which is now known to those in the know, let's get energy from the giant trees by visiting the beech mother tree and the large katsura tree with a circumference of 12 m or more.

★ There is no toilet in the mountains. Do you want to meet at the meeting place or bring a portable toilet?
