Tsurubeotoshi Mountain Pass


釣瓶落峠 紅葉1


Spot for great scenary at the prefectral boundary
Tsurubeotoshi mountain pass is at the prefectural boundary between Akita and Aomori prefectures in front of Tsurubeotoshi tunnel. As you proceed, huge and steep valley will catch your eyes. The pass is at the altitude of 590m, and before the road was paved, people used to go down the steep valley to get water. That is why this place was named “Trusubeotoshi” meaning a bottle hung from the top inside a will to scoop water. It is most beautiful in Autumn when leaves turn colorful and show beautiful contrast between soft wood and hard wood.
