-----ABOUT THE AREA-------
In Hokubo we have 88 spots across the rural landscapes. Locals do the journey twice a year, in April and September. This route was used to teach the kids how to pray, so the elders of the family put some candies or chips to attract the kids.
It has a distance of approximately 25 kilometres around mountains where you can find amazing places to be with yourself, rivers, lakes and even in the middle of downtown Hokubo.
In general, this is a great way of exploring the details of Hokubo and having a real authentic adventure, because you can do it your own way. How profound the experience depends deeply on yourself and this pilgrimage is a great reminder of this knowledge.
Usually, this is a 3 - 4 days pilgrimage, but this depends a lot in the intention of your journey. The starting point changes every year. Traditionally the pilgrimage was done on foot, but nowadays people do it by bike or even by car. There are a few hills in the route, but in general, is not a difficult course perfect for people of all ages.
Or if the purpose of your trip is exploring the Japanese mountains, Hokubo is a great place for you. Downtown Hokubo is just in the middle of a valley surrounded by forests with plenty of lakes, which is the home of a great variety of animals.
Surrounded by nature, Maniwa is the perfect getaway spot from the hustle and bustle of city life. Over here, you could immerse yourself in the rich local culture through hands-on experience with local artisans. From tie-dye experience to purse making workshop, there will be something for you!
For those who enjoy drinking, you will be in for a treat as Maniwa is home to some of the best sake (Japanese alcohol), wine and beer breweries such as Gozenshu, Mimasaka Beer Works, Hiruzen Winery, etc.
When you're done exploring this lovely city, you could reach other cities in west Japan such as Osaka, Hiroshima and Okayama easily by bus or car!
