Details

Oze National Park is a popular hiking destination north of Tokyo. The park covers a 372 km² area and overlaps 4 different prefectures. Its most well-known feature is the Ozegahara Marshland. Oze is extremely popular in late spring with blooming skunk cabbages and during the fall with the early arrival of autumn colours.

We are headed to the Ozegahara Marshland, a fantastic and very scenic hike. The trails are well maintained and elevated boardwalks allow an unforgettable hike above marshlands. Overnight in a mountain lodge, there are waterfalls, lakes, and mountains to explore, and the area is high up with very little light pollution making it an ideal spot for stargazing.
