Enjoy excellent hikes across an open green space spreading over four prefectures at Oze National Park, a 372 sq km (143 sq mi) park some 150 km (93 mi) north of Tokyo. Well-maintained trails, spectacular waterfalls, and a huge pond stand out as the highlights of this popular hiking destination. Walk on planks across vast Ozegahara marshes, the most visited part of the park, which sit around 1,400 m (4,593 ft) above sea level. Observe skunk cabbage, yellow lily, red weeds, and colored grass as you walk. In order to preserve the nature, you will walk on logs and planks most of the time. You can stay overnight in the park's small hotel. To visit Oze National Park and other attractions in Japan, use our Japan online day trip planner .
Oze National Park Reviews
１泊２日で鳩間峠〜尾瀬沼間(三条の滝を含む)を往復しました。尾瀬ヶ原付近は単調でしたが、三条の滝に行くルートは本格的な山道で楽しむことができました。それにしても、すれ違う人の８割が中高年の団体客でした。自分と同年代か下の世代はほとんど出会うことがありませんでした。歩道や山小屋、トイレもきちんと整備され、快適なトレッキングや登山ができると言うのに…ちょっともったいないと思う場所でした。 more »We made a round trip from Hatoma Pass to Ozenuma (including Sanjo Falls) in two days per night. The area around Ozegahara was monotonous, but the route to Sanjo Falls was able to be enjoyed on a full-fledged mountain path. Nevertheless, eight percent of the people who pass each other were middle-aged group guests. I rarely met generations my age or younger. The sidewalks, mountain huts and toilets are well maintained, so you can make comfortable trekking and climbing. It was a place i think was a waste of time.
尾瀬を代表する花・ミズバショウですが、残念ながら梅雨の６月がミズバショウの季節です。梅雨に入る前の６月初旬に鳩待峠から山の鼻、牛首分岐を日帰りで回ってきました。鳩待峠から尾瀬ヶ原の入口・山の鼻までは急な下り坂。６月初旬はまだ雪が残っていて、所々遊歩道を塞ぐほどでした。山の鼻の周辺から牛首分岐にかけての尾瀬ヶ原は、遊歩道の周辺いミズバショウがたくさん咲いていて、かわいらしい光景を楽しむことができまし... more »It is the flower and mizubasho which represents Oze, but unfortunately june of the rainy season is the season of mizubasho. Before the rainy season, at the beginning of June, we went around the nose and cow neck branch of the mountain from Hatashi Pass for a day trip. From Hatashi Pass to the entrance of Ozegahara and the nose of the mountain, there is a steep downhill. In early June, snow was still there, and it was enough to block the promenade in some places. From the vicinity of the nose of the mountain to the beef neck branch, Ozegahara was able to enjoy a cute sight with a lot of mizubasho blooming around the promenade.
Mmm. Beautiful in any season. Hiroi
