Yamagata

fascinating landscape; the ice coated trees at Zao Liza. With the trees on the mountains covered in ice and snow, you'll be greeted by unbelievable scenes of pure white. You can also take the ropeway to see the scenery from the sky.

The Zao Mountains can be enjoyed in different ways for each season throughout the year. Autumn sees the mountain decorated with Momiji leaves, and with the waterfalls and lakes you can enjoy Japan's take on the four seasons.

The Shirakawa Komine Castle has been classed as a National Historic Site of Japan since 2010 and serves as the symbol of Shirakawa.
