Sanriku Fukko (Reconstruction) National Park: Michinoku Coastal Trail
Tanesashi Coast, Hachinohe City, Aomori Prefecture
A new path named "Michinoku Coastal Trail" was opened in Tohoku. It is a long-distance nature trail of approximately 700 km that follows the Pacific coast from Hachinohe City in Aomori Prefecture to Soma City in Fukushima Prefecture. Following the trail on foot at a walking pace, you will hear the soft sounds of nature and feel the breeze, the bright glaring sunlight and the warmth of the land with all your senses. The greatest characteristic of this trail is that it is surrounded not only by the natural landscape created by the mountains but also the dynamic sea which makes the Tohoku coastal area special and unique. This trail is also intended to bring people closer together. People walking on the trail together and meeting other people will invigorate the local community and lead to the region's reconstruction. Visitors to Tohoku and local residents walking together will create a whole new path. Join us for a hike on the Michinoku Coastal Trail.
