On the path for walking (concept) from the coastline around the Asarigawa Onsen (hot brine spring) district to Lake Otarunai, there is an origin of fluctuations (1/f) that you can feel close to one's life cycle. The nourishment of the forest carried by Asarigawa headwaters passes through Lake Otarunai (artificial dam), and flows into the sea as a mountain stream, and gives nourishment to the plankton and small fish enrichening the sea. Continuing along this river, one may enjoy fishing at a spot they like or allow the sound of the mountain stream to fill their ears. Flowers also bloom. You can also enjoy entering an onsen. The Asarigawa Footpath Concept is not just walking by farmland, but envisions the possibility of a path that purifies the 5 senses.
This is not for the purpose of completing the walk, Let's walk Asarigawa Onsen to make a day, for example, where you can be disconnected from your devices, allow time to drift by, and have fresh oxygen delivered to every corner of your body through deep breathing! We make such a path. Let alone the rest and cuisine of the hot spring, there is a campground, BBQ areas, a skiing area, and a golf course here. Enjoy with family, friends or even by yourself, by walking this place, you can take in the nutrients of the nature of the rich Asari district.
