Heisei-no-mori Forest is located in Nasu-yumoto area, surrounded by the beautiful Nasu highlands.
The forest has a wide variety of flora and fauna including several rare species.
There are walking trails through the woods and the visitors centre at the entrance has a really nice exhibit of the nature found in the forest.
Every season is different and you can go back repeatedly and see something new.
You can register for programs, guides that can help you get the most out of the forest, but even without it’s a delightful walk, that’s clearly marked.
If you walk to the top you come out near Kita onsen and the beautiful Komadome waterfall.
