Autum leaves

The autumn foliage of Mt. Tsurugi comes down from the top of the mountain to the Minokoshi area in early to mid-October. The vivid colors of autumn leaves are different from the man-made garden-like beauty, but they show us their natural beauty.
The beauty of the leaves can take on shapes that one would never expect.
The gradation from yellow to red, the brightly colored leaves reflected on the lakeside, the fall colors change greatly depending on the time of year and also on the time of day. The same scenery seen in the morning will look different in the afternoon or evening.

Sea of clouds

The view from the top of the mountain is magnificent, and the sea of clouds below makes the mountains of Tsurugi mountain range as islands in the sea. The view from the top of the mountain is magnificent and breathtaking, and unique to Mt.Tsurugi.
