About the Area

Maniwa City is a vast rural city that offers travelers the opportunity to enjoy lush scenery, agricultural goodness, outdoor activities, historic townscapes and relaxing hot springs.

The Hiruzen Highlands and the surrounding mountains largely define Maniwa’s natural environment. Highland pastures are home to the local dairy industry, which is at the forefront of milk and natural cheese production.

The mountains of the Hiruzen region are great for skiing and trekking, with the lowland areas offering excellent roads for cycling.

Katsuyama is a traditional town that is dominated by authentic Edo era storefronts, houses and warehouses. The town shops are famous for the curtains that decorate their entrances.

North of Katsuyama is the hot spring town of Yubara and its signature Yubara Dam. Enjoy an outdoor bath at the base of the dam or venture into one of the local spas.
