  • Kumashiro-Cave and Inatsunagu-Shrine

    It is a ruin where Yayoi-style pottery was excavated, and it was also a place where hunters slept long ago.

    Inatsunagu-Shrine is a guardian deity of Manza and is enshrined in the Kumashiro-Cave.

  • Mt.Shirane and Dicentra group

    It is called “the queen of alpine plants” because it grows in a harsh environment where no other plants can grow.

    The name of the flower comes from the shape of the flower resembling a horse's face.

    The Dicentra group of Mt.Motoshirane is in full bloom from early July to late July.

  • Manza Onsen Karabuki
    (Air blow)

    Manza's famous “Karabuki
    (Air blow)” is a place where you can see the fumarolic activity of active volcanoes up close.

  • Ushiike-Pond

    It is a beautiful pond surrounded by primeval forests and densely planted with flowers such as moss.

    It is said that this name was given because it was a place where a person who came to the Onsen used to connect cows.

    Autumn is a spot for autumn leaves.
