Mt. Tateyama, Midagahara Wetlands
Mt. Tateyama, Midagahara Wetlands


The Mt. Tateyama Midagahara Wetlands extend throughout the highland, with many beautiful alpine plants such as cotton grass spread throughout the fresh green fields. More than 3,000 pools of water are scattered throughout the highland, and the deep blue water makes for a pleasant contrast with the surrounding sea of green. The most impressive ZEKKEI landscape in Tateyama can be seen in mid-September: the entire mountain is covered by a forest painted in deep reds and yellows.
