With Oze National Park and the three great peaks of Echigo (Echigo Sanzan), Uonuma has some stunning natural assets. With pleasure cruises, campgrounds and promenades you can easily enjoy nature to your heart’s content.
From the end of March until the start of November you can enjoy pleasure cruises on the lake.
It is not just the autumn foliage in October that is popular, but also the new greenery in May which is similar to Northern Europe. Once you emerge from the long tunnels of the Okutadami Silver Line, you find yourself in a place surrounded by 2000 meter peaks and beech forests, almost as if you are no longer in Japan.
Definitely check out the tall mountains reflecting on the lake surface from the deck of the ship.
