Sugi no Osugi ( The tallest cedar in Japan )
The “Sugi no Osugi”, which is famous as the tallest cedar in Japan, is a huge tree estimated to be 3,000 years old and is said to have been planted by Susano-no-mikoto.
The cedar actually consists of two separate trees, called ”Minami-osugi (The Great Southern Cedar)” and “Kita-osugi (The Great northern Cedar)” respectively, and is also called “wedded cedar” because the two cedars are merged at the roots.
It’s bigger than I expected, so it’s worth a look.
Cooperation fee: 200 yen

Mt. KAJIGA-MORI Prefectural Natural Park
This is a nature park located in the southeast of Otoyo Town, focusing on the mountainous landscape of Kajiga-mori at an altitude of 1,400 meters.
“Japanese andromeda”, “azalea”, “bamboo grass”, and “Japanese nutmeg” grow densely here. Near the top there is a grassy plain with an excellent view of the Yoshino River basin to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south.
The natural beauty of the area attracts visitors from season to season.
There are a variety of mountain trails, and mountain climbers can enjoy the trails throughout the year.
The temperature at the top of Mt. Kajigamori is about 10 degrees lower than in the lowlands, so even in summer, a jacket is necessary in the morning and evening.
It is beautiful. There is also a mountain lodge and an astronomical observatory where you can enjoy the starry sky at night and a sea of clouds in the morning on a clear day.
