Recommended Area Spots

Nakayama Pass

This sightseeing spot is located at the summit of Nakayama Pass, which welcomes nearly 4 million visitors per year. It’s the perfect spot for viewing Mt. Yotei, and on clear days, the contrast between the snow-covered summit and the blue sky is dazzlingly beautiful. The famous fried potatoes here are coated in a secret, magical powder and fried to perfection. The crispy batter matches perfectly with the piping-hot, sweet potatoes for a completely unique taste.

Fukidashi Park

Rainfall and snowmelt from Mt. Yotei, also known as Ezo Fuji, is filtered and fortified with subsoil minerals over decades to result in incredibly pure spring water. Fukidashi Park is home to one of the largest springs in the country, producing 80,000 tons of water per day, which is enough for 300,000 people to use on a daily basis. In 1985 it was selected by the Ministry of the Environment as one of Japan’s 100 most famous waters. The park attracts many visitors who come to taste some of this delicious, natural water.
