Oirase stream

The Oirase Stream is about 14 kilometers long and joins the Tsuta River from Nenokuchi of Lake Towada. The dynamic landscape covered with deep natural forests is beautiful, and the cliffs approaching on both banks are welded tuff formed by pumice and volcanic ash deposited at high temperatures, creating a powerful view. Along the roads and sidewalks built along the mountain stream, there are many highlights such as Ashura no Nagare and Choshi Otaki.
