Welcome to the Oriental Arcadia

It's said that in the 19th century female traveler Isabella Bird praised this Okitama area as "Oriental Arcadia". She made a good metaphor, didn't she? Okitama area consists of 3 cities in Yonezawa-shi, Nagai-shi ,Nanyo-shi and 5 towns which are Oguni-machi, Iide-machi, Kawanishi-machi, Takahata-machi and Shirataka-machi located in the south of Yamagata-ken. It hasn't changed since the past: here is a beautiful, magnificent nature, the gift of fertile land and the vibrance of traditional festivals. There is the heart of hospitality to cherish people.There are also affluent foods, well-known hot springs as well as secluded hot springs, Sake and relish in rich variations too. Well, when you travel, please come sometimes to Okitama and fully experience the Oriental Arcadia.
