Idyllic scenery stretches throughout the gradual hills 800 to 1,200 meters above sea level here in Handa Plateau.
Many iconic onsen hot springs are found near here: Kannojigoku Onsen, Ukenokuchi Onsen, Chojabaru Onsen, as well as many ryokan facilities and public communal hot springs. Rich in natural environment, the Plateau is also home to many cattle farms and ranches as well.
Stunning colors and textures of abundant nature can be captured here all throughout the year - including deep green from spring to summer, golden color of Japanese pampas grass in fall, and sparkling white glares of snow in winter.
