The best visit to Oze National Park can be made during the peak of autumn season, where you can enjoy the yellowish or brownish grass at Ozegahara Marshland, together with the colorful fall foliage of the surrounding mountains. Most of Oze National Park lies within Gunma and Fukushima prefectures. A one-day trip from Tokyo would be possible, but I recommend taking the night bus and spending one whole day for hiking. The track is quite flat from Hatomachitoge to Ozegahara, but somewhat difficult for beginner hikers if you're planning to go all the way to Ozenuma from Hatomachitoge. Staying overnight in one of the lodges would also be a good option.

A student (by procrastination) who wishes to be a full-time traveler. Or better, hopefully will be able to make it as a profession in the future. Currently lives in Japan and apparently will still be here for more years to come. Have been falling in love with Japan since child, and the more I get to know tiny little things about this country, the more I feel like continuing staying here :)
