This is a hill climb route with a peaceful road in good condition where cars rarely pass. You can enjoy the charming atmosphere different from the Nasu Kogen area, where you can see a vast and beautiful view along the route.
It is located on the western side of the Nasu Mountain Range and it is a convenient way to access the peaceful onsen area called “Itamuro Onsen”, famous for its herbal bath of Shimotsuke.
The wonderful-winding road continues 8km between the mountains.
You can enjoy the view of the deep mountain range that is just like a scene from the Japanese cartoon “Nihon Mukaahi Banashi” (Once Upon a Time in Japan).
You may not be able to imagine that Nasu is a famous sightseeing area. This is a very isolated route.
This is a great spot where you can fully enjoy the splendid autumn leaves, whilst climbing the hill.
At the top of this route, which has a dead-end, there is a cycle stand to mount your bicycle on.
The onsen called Sachi no Yu at the entrance to the hill climb route, is a great location to visit on the way back down.
