Feel the healing qualities of nature with Oze National Park’s breadth of landscapes, flora, and fauna.

Extending across multiple prefectures north of Tokyo, Oze National Park is a hiker’s paradise thanks to abundant mountains, marshlands, forests, lakes, and waterfalls. Its most popular spots can be found at Ozegahara Marsh and Lake Ozenuma. Throughout the park, walk along wooden boardwalks and witness endless meadows marked by reflective lakes that mirror the surrounding naturescape. In late spring, skunk cabbages bloom across the marshland, covering the area in white blossoms.

Equally coveted views occur during mid-summer when yellow alpine lilies paint the landscape golden or in mid-autumn when the area’s grass turns vibrant yellow and red. The well maintained walkways cross relatively flat terrain, but be sure to dress appropriately for a multi-hour hike if you want to explore the full area. If you are looking for a more challenging hike, Oze’s mountain trails offer a number of climbing and hiking opportunities. The park also has mountain huts and campgrounds, which, in addition to lodging, provide valuable park information. With a nearby place to stay, you can start your morning with a sunrise over Gunma’s majestic landscape and end your day with amber rays at sunset.

Oze National Park encompasses regions in Gunma, Niigata, Fukushima, and Tochigi prefectures, and is filled with diverse natural beauty, plantlife, and wildlife. The southern part of the park is home to Mount Shibutsu and Kasagatake, as well as Japanese beech trees. Towards the center of the park are the renowned Ozegahara Marsh and Lake Ozenuma, and to the east are Mount Tashiro, Mount Taishaku, and Mount Daikuratakayama. North of the park’s center are two magnificent waterfalls—Sanjo-no-taki Falls and Hiraname-no-taki Falls. Stop by the Ozenuma Visitor Center, located on the eastern shore of Lake Ozenuma in Fukushima, to learn more about the park’s ecosystem, hiking opportunities, and seasonal sights.
