The highlight of Hachimantai is view from Aspite line road and the peak trail.
The trail around Mikaeri Pass has no steep slope and it’s easy to walk to the summit.
But There’s no nice view at Hachimantai peak.
Best season of Autumn foliage in the mountain is mid October. Since there are many needle leaved trees around the summit, there are colored leaves on the hillside of the mountain.
The phenomenon called “Dragon eye” can be seen at Kagami-numa pond near the summit from mid May to mid June. Recently this limited time spot is getting popular.
