About Yamagata

Yamagata prefecture is located in Tohoku, the northeast part of Japan. It is divided between its inland area and its coastal area facing the Sea of Japan. The former is surrounded by mountains, resulting in mild springs and autumns, but hot summers and cold, snowy winters. Because this climate offers a completely different scenery depending on the time of the year, it is possible to enjoy beautiful nature and delicious seasonal food all-year-long.
