About kirigamine

Kirigamine is a gently-sloping plateau located in the heart of Yatsugatake-Chushin Kogen Quasi-National Park. It has multiple peaks, the highest of which is Mt. Kuruma (Kurumayama) at 1,925 meters. These highlands, formed through volcanic activity, are home to a variety of natural environments–from rolling grasslands and high moors to native trees–each with a wealth of native plant species notable for both their diversity and the size of their colonies.
