This vast plateau spreads at the foot of Mt. Kuroso. From mid-September to the end of November, Chinese silvergrass blankets the whole area. These silvergrass dance in breeze during dusk, enveloping the area in a breathtaking golden color, reminiscent of the last scene in the famous anime, "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind." Many tourists and hikers visit the area just to witness this sight.
