Tsuruoka

— 14 nights
Tsuruoka, famous for its scenic surroundings, attracts tourists due to its proximity to the Dewa Sanzan, sacred mountains revered by the Shugendo religion.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Mt. Haguro and Ken Domon Museum of Photography. Head to Yotteke Popora and Machiya Gallery Yamakichifor some retail therapy. Venture out of the city with trips to Hiroshige Museum of Art (in Tendo), Sakata (Hatsumago Shuzo Shiryokan Kura Tambokan, Somaro, &more) and Yamagata (Dokkonuma Swamp, Museum of History and Culture Warabe No Sato, &more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Hagurosan Five-Story Pagoda, get engrossed in the history at Fujiswa Shuhei Memorial Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Yudonosan Shrine, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Tsuruoka City Kamo Aquarium.
