Famous hot springs and breathtaking mountain views

Yamagata is bordered by the Zao mountain range to the east and the Dewa Sanzan mountains to the west. This setting provides a wealth of after-convention attractions, ranging from superb winter resorts that host international ski competitions to the famous Zao onsen hot springs and the Yamadera mountain temples. Yamagata has a renowned cuisine based on the region’s cornucopia of locally produced foods, the most famous dish being a kind of taro stew. Yamagata offers modern convention facilities, with convenient access by Shinkansen bullet train and international flights to Sendai Airport.
To help visitors enjoy their stay in Yamagata, the city has prepared a number of special tourist programs, including the City Tour (history of the city and Japanese foods), Bus Tour (Zao, Haguro and Yamadera Temples), and a tour to experience kimono, flower arrangement and tea ceremony.
