The town of Yamagata and its surrounding prefecture have a wealth of attractions, both man-made and natural. Known for its cherry production, the agricultural fields surrounding the town lead out into a rugged landscape of hills, ravines, and rivers, with ancient temples dotting the land here and there, enjoying privileged viewpoints across the changing terrain. The rural city has a notably large student population, making the atmosphere a little more modern and cutting-edge than in comparably remote cities. Trips to hot spring resorts have become a major part of many Yamagata holidays. Use our Japan journey planner to arrange your visit to Yamagata and any other destinations in Japan that take your fancy.
