Kurikoma Mountain
It is a composite volcano with a conical base, blessed with spectacular clusters of alpine shrubbery and a primeval forest. Located in nearly the center of the Tohoku region, the summit of the scenic mountain provides a panoramic view of the surrounding Gassan, Chokai, Hayachine, and Komagata mountains, the Zao mountain range, and far in the distance, the Pacific Ocean. It is a national park, and the entire base of the mountain hosts clusters of shrubbery of over 150 kinds, providing an admirable view of fields of flowers. (Traffic is regulated, so please contact us for questions.)
