( April 13 event ) Hosawa Waterfall and Sengen Rige where Katakuris Bloom


This event is a hiking for “Hosawa Waterfall” selected as “100 waterfalls in Japan” and “Asama Ridge” where you can enjoy walking ridges for novice hikers with little up / down.

Asama ridge is the season when Katakuri (dogtooth violets) blooms just this season.
Also, because it is cherry blossom season, you may be able to watch them at the same time if you are lucky.

In addition, the Asama Ridge is an important road from old times, called Koshu way, which connects both countries of Bushu and Koshu, in the Edo period was a road for an important life for charcoal transport.

Let’s relax and enjoy hiking while thinking of old time people in spring fresh green trail.
