The Oirase Gorge, which runs for about 14km from Lake Towada to Mt. Yakeyama, is located in Towada-Hachimantai National Park and is designated as a special protection area. In winter, snow piles up, icicles grow all over the rocky cliffs, and the waterfall freezes in the extreme cold, creating a world that looks like an ink painting. The “Oirase Gorge Icefall Tour”, where you can enjoy the breathtaking winter scenery of the Oirase Gorge, was entrusted by Towada City, Aomori Prefecture, and operated by Towada Oirase Tourism Organization (Chairman: Onoda). Kinji) is a bus tour sponsored by. This tour, which is implemented under a public-private partnership system with the aim of increasing the number of tourists and overnight guests, won the 2018 Good Design Award and the 6th Japan Tourism Award. This winter will be the 6th time.
In the daytime course, you can visit the beautiful bluish icicles and icefalls while listening to the formation and nature of the valley with a nature guide. In the night tour, a special light car will operate together with the tour bus, and will light up five spots in the Oirase stream. The mysteries of the icicles and icefalls floating in the darkness of the night create the illusion that time has stopped. Each viewing spot has its own lighting concept, and you can enjoy the colors and changes of the light.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we would appreciate it if you could interview us and introduce us.
