Travel Guide - Utsukushi-ga-hara-kogen Highlands

InformationInformation

Located in the northernmost part of Yatsugatake Chushin National Park, Utsukushi-ga-hara-kogen Highlands is one of the largest tablelands in Japan. Utsukushi-ga-hara-kogen offers visitors a moorland scenery on a mountain plateau at an elevation of 2,000 meters. A well maintained footpath runs through the pastures, perfect for enjoying an easy trek. A 360-degree panorama provides excellent views of many mountain ranges, including the distant Mt. Fuji.
Utsukushi Tower, the symbol of Utsukushi-ga-hara-kogen, was built as a shelter for climbers. The bell inside the tower serves to help climbers find their way in foggy weather. The 6-meter high tower was originally built in 1954, and the current tower was reconstructed in 1984.
