1. From Tokyo, a one-way trip takes about 195 minutes aboard the Yamagata Shinkansen Tsubasa train to Oishida, the station nearest Ginzan Onsen. This easy 2-day short trip from Tokyo includes a 1-night accommodation at Ginzan Onsen, a famous scenic spot in Yamagata. On Day 2, use the included one-way taxi service to visit Yama-dera, formally known as Risshaku-ji Temple, and enjoy sightseeing!
2. Ginzan Onsen is a hot spring ryokan district that has retained its appearance since the Taisho period (1912-1926). The town streets, illuminated by gas lamps, are rich in atmosphere. Visitors can enjoy a variety of appearances throughout the seasons with verdant green, colored autumn leaves, or snowy landscapes.
3. Risshaku-ji Temple, also known as Yama-dera, was founded in 860. It is a Tendai sect Buddhist temple of ancient and honorable origin which stands on a sacred mountain symbolic of Tohoku. After climbing the stairs with more than 1,000 steps, enjoy the wonderful seasonal landscape below. The view from Godaido Hall, which overlooks Yama-dera as it seems to stick out from the cliff, will have you wanting to take a picture of the scene.
4. Stay at Ginzanso, a ryokan featuring a traditional Japanese appearance. Enjoy the scenery of the hot spring town on the 10-minute walk over. From the lodging you can also enjoy the view of Ginzan's river and mountains.
