The long-awaited touring season!
Full of green on Tohoku touring! The way to stay cool on highland even in summer.
You cannot just ride! This time, we will introduce touring inns from Yamagata Zao Onsen to Yonezawa-Touring Sanctuary, Inawashiro, Fukushima Prefecture.
If you enter the Zao Highline for a fee from the Zao Echo Line (free of charge), you can overlook the famous crater lake “Okama” from the observatory.
It is a tough place because the weather changes a lot, and there are many windy days, but it is a spot that riders want to visit at least once.
The road is closed due to snow from early November to late April, so you can run relatively cool and comfortable even in the summer.
★The photo was taken in late May.
It is safe even if your body gets a little cold. It takes only 30 minutes on the Zao Echo Line to Yamagata Zao Onsen on the Winding Road, and it will take me 40 minutes. A hot spring that flows directly from the source is waiting for riders.
The first thing that welcomes you down the Zao Echo Line is “Takamiya Rurikura Resort”, where modern architecture stands out in nature.
Standing in front of the slopes, this hotel has a motorcycle parking lot in the underground, so it is safe.

It is also good to go out and soak in the hot springs on the way back from the event at the Sugo circuit.
