SpotOku-Nikko

att.JAPAN Issue 54, December 2010

The mountain area beyond the Irohazaka mountain pass that includes Yumoto Onsen is called "Oku-Nikko," or outlying Nikko, and has an abundance of natural scenery with lakes, waterfalls, and marshlands. Mt. Nantai is 2,486 meters in height and is a great place for hiking from spring to autumn. Kegon Falls, a waterfall of 97 meters, is one of the most famous falls in Japan. Senjogahara is a highland moor at an altitude of 1,400 meters above sea level. It was inscribed as a registered wetland under the Ramsar Convention in 2005. Various animals and plants inhabit the marshland, and the alpine plants are particularly beautiful from spring to summer. When it comes to food in Nikko, yuba is a must. In the tofu family but composed of delicate layers of the skin of the boiled soybean milk, yuba was originally a convenient food for Buddhist priests to carry.
