Kikuchi Valley is said to be a ”natural cooler” with an average temperature of 13 degrees Celsius even in summer. With new green leaves in spring, a summer resort, red leaves in autumn, and frost flowers in winter, you can enjoy its beautiful forests and streams throughout the year. Why not refresh yourself listening to the sound of the streams and birdsongs?
