The Oirase Stream in nature is beautiful
The Lake Towada, and the 14 kilometer source section between Nenokuchi and Yakeyama is called the Oirase Stream.
There are many various waterfalls along this stream, so we can enjoy the scenery that clean water flows and the woodsy fragrance.
This beautiful stream was created by rocks and sand produced by a volcanic eruption. Amid the surrounding natural forest, the stream gradually transformed itself into a beautiful form as time went by .
The upper reaches of the river form a scenic gorge with numerous rapids and waterfalls, and is one of the major tourist attractions of the Towada-Hachimantai National Park.
