Shiraike Pond Forest Park

Gorgeous Autumn Colors and Hiking Trails Shiraike Pond, located just above the community of Kijiya alongside the road to Renge Hot Springs, offers beautiful views of the mountains and trees reflected in its surface.

Amakazari Foothills Shiroike Pond & Forest Park

Hiking Trails and Mt. Amakazariyama The view of Mt. Amakazariyama reflected in this pond is breathtaking and the forests around Shiroike Pond are full of natural plants and wildlife waiting to be discovered. Thanks to its remote location deep in the Nechi Valley, this park is also one of the best places in Itoigawa to enjoy the night sky. In addition to a number of leisurely trails, this park is also the best place to start a climb of Mt. Tokurayama. At 927 m, Mt. Tokurayama is definitely one of the easiest climbs in Itoigawa, but the view from the top is surprisingly beautiful!
