Yakehashiri Lava Flow

Located at the foot of Mt Iwate, the Yakehashiri Lava Flow is the result of an explosion on Mt Iwate that took place in 1732 and spread along its northeastern slope. This 3km long and 1.5km wide lava flow is, depending of the area, between 5 to 10m thick and has been turned into a stunning park that everyone can visit and enjoy.

If you are brave enough and wear the proper shoes, it will take you around one hour to complete the whole Yakehashiri Lava Flow trail and enjoy a unique experience and view of Mt Iwate and its surrounding area.
