4.8.2019 Hachimantai, Iwate, Japan in Summer

I took a walk in Hachmantai in August.

While winters are bitterly cold, summers are divinely green under a blue sky.


▼Let the search begin!

(The kanji means National park, Hachimantai)

▼The road leading to Akita.

It looks like it would be pleasant to drive through.

▼Hachimantai is an alpine marsh spreading around the 1,613 m summit.

It is possible to drive up almost to the summit.

Therefore, from the starting point, there are many short coniferous trees.

▼The scenery was also alpine

▼A short counterclockwise walk leads to a wooden path followed by a marsh.

▼There was a frog that appeared to be a Japanese Brown frog.

▼As I moved deeper into the area, the view became more expansive.

▼It is a blue-green Abies sachalinensis.

The pinecones are sticky.

▼Small ponds had appeared.

▼Dwarf day lilies is now at its best.

▼Hachiman-numa swamp came into view!

▼The sky is wide open.

This is the best part of the mountain marshes.

▼This is a refuge hut.

It is for emergency evacuation, but it is open to the public and you can stay there for free.

Of course, it is essential to use it neatly and clean it up.

▼From the refuge hut, Hachiman-numa can be seen.

This is the interior.
It is simple but comfortable.

▼Distant view of Hachiman-numa swap

▼Gama-muna swamp.

The color of the water is beautiful.

▼To the summit!

▼This is the summit of Hachimantai.

Hachimantai is one of the 100 most famous mountains in Japan.

The summit of Hachimantai, at an elevation of 1,613 m, is modest compared to the path so far.

▼On the way back, there is a megane-numa swamp.

▼Mysterious recess.

They do not know how they were made.

It may have once been the crater of a volcano.

In summer in Hachimantai, the plateau is colored with blue sky and deep green, and various creatures move about.

Alpine plants blooming in the short summer are also beautiful.
