Mt. Zao is a famous cluster of stratovolcanoes that extends across Yamagata and Miyagi prefectures, and it is listed as one of the 100 Famous Japanese Mountains. These mountains can be enjoyed all year round, offering its world-famous “snow monsters” in winter, fields of wildflowers in summer, and brilliant red and gold leaves in autumn. Visitors can also enjoy trekking, hiking, and mountain climbing with the Mt. Zao Instructors’ Association. For those looking to extend their trip, nearby areas such as Zao Onsen, the Zao Okama Crater, and the Zao Kogen Bodaira Plateau also offer opportunities to enjoy the bountiful nature.
