Let’s enjoy Nobeyama plateau!

Recommended season: Summer/ Nobeyama Station (Nagano prefecture, Minami Saku Gun Minami Maki village)

Minamimaki-mura was selected as one of the “best 3 starry sky in Japan”, as selected by astronomers.

Spot ① "Hirasawa Pass" overlooking the mountains in all directions

Point of interest. The starting point for climbing Mt. Meshimori, the Hirasawa Pass, which has a rock named Lion rock, which looks like a lion lying down from a distance. The sunset is also very beautiful.

Spot ② “Feel the Best” [JR Rail Highest Point of interest. ]

Point of interest. Altitude 1375m. An interesting place on the JR line is a large pillar. Aside from this, there is a railway highest point shrine built in the hope of the safety of travelers. There are only railway shrines, and the gods are the rails used on the Koumi Line. The wheel of SL “C56” that once ran on the Koumi Line is also displayed. The 1375m point is popular among non-railway fans because it can be read as “Hitomi Happiness” and “All the people Pass”.

Restaurant Highest Point.

A mountain hut-style Japanese restaurant at the highest point on the JR line. The soba from Nobeyama is ground and freshly made by the master every morning. The freshly cooked soba has a wonderful sweetness and chewy feel. "Chilled vegetable tempura soba" with deep-fried round tempura made from local vegetables is recommended. The classic “Mori soba” is also delicious.
