Hachimantai Aspite Line

八幡平アスピーテライン(八幡平市)

The Aspite Line is a 27-km mountain sightseeing road that runs through Towada-Hachimantai National Park straddling Iwate and Akita. With a rest house at the peak, it is one of the best roads in the country for a scenic drive, especially in fall when you can enjoy the panorama of colorful beeches and maples at every curve. The Aspite Line is closed during winter due to heavy snow, but in late April, the road is reopened with impressively high walls of snow on both sides; the snow walls, which can reach a height of 6 m in some places, are so smooth and vertical that the snow appears as if it has been sliced with a knife. Experience the beauty of both winter and spring on the Aspite Line, by driving through the corridor of snow which will then lead to cherry blossoms in bloom at the base of Hachimantai.
*Closed during winter
