Oirase river in Aomori prefecture (Northen area of Japan) is designated in the two categories of ‘Special Places of Scenic Beauty’ and ‘Natural Monuments’. It starts from the lake Towada through 14km in the Towada national park. I visited to hike there for 4 hours in late October. That years red leaves were late, but I enjoyed the scene of the Oirase river and many falls in the mountain.
