Take your deepest breaths at the morning Yamadera!
This tour takes you up to Yamadera in the early morning before the mountain opens and offers a comparison of Yamagata brand rice while enjoying the spectacular view from Godaido (a kind of observatory).
Only participants of this tour enter the mountain, so it is reserved for you. Breathe in the early summer air to your heart’s content while avoiding crowds!
At the end of the climb, a spectacular view and delicious Yamagata rice balls await!
A pleasant start to the day
You will climb up and down about 1,000 steps each way. It’s a wonderfully refreshing way to exercise while soaking in the atmosphere of the forest.
It can be a little tough for those who don’t get a lot of exercise, but it’s a great morning experience for a pleasant start to the day.
The view you get with the guide
A dedicated Yamadera guide will accompany you, so you can see and feel views that you probably wouldn’t notice if you were climbing on your own. Not only will you just climb, but you will also be immersed in the world of the Yamadera by hearing about its origins and stories.
