Just like a picture postcard! A photogenic Valley
Miyagi Prefecture Narukokyo
Narukokyo is a valley and locates between Naruko hot spring and Nakayama-daira hot spring.
It is also famous as a great place for autumn leaves and has been designated as a place of scenic beauty in Miyagi Prefecture.
Scenery of the valley and Ofukazawa bridge which you can see from the observation deck at Narukokyo Rest House is a popular spot for taking photos!
If you want to see trains running over Narukokyo, we recommend to take photos from on the Okufukazawa bridge!
It's best to check the timetable of Rikuu East Line going to Shinjo direction in advance as trains are limited.
A tip for taking photos is to use the horn sound, that train makes before the train leaves the tunnel, as a signal and just use continous shooting mode!
Autumn leave season is crowded, so it's a good idea to go there with plenty of time!
