The 560-hectare forest, used to be a part of the Nasu Imperial Villa, is opened to the public as “Nasu Heisei-no-Mori Forest”. In the ancient beech woodland, wildlife includes foxes, rabbits, bears and dormice (the natural treasure). The park provides well-maintained trails, various nature programmes and guided walks. In winter, visitors can make their way through the forest wearing snowshoes. The tree- covered mystic “Komadome Waterfall” is a must-see spot.
