“Hetsuri” is a word from the local Aizu dialect meaning a “dangerous cliff”. Views of the cliffs are particularly graceful when the Japanese wisterias are in bloom during summer. Autumnal foliage also creates a beautiful contrast with the white rock faces. While contemplating nature’s million years of creation, the scenery is truly dazzling.

Ouchi-juku cuisine


A unique food loved in this area is Negisoba. Although scallions are an essential garnish for soba dishes, the people of Aizu use a single raw scallion stalk to eat with instead of using chopsticks. This is a truly rare menu item even for Japanese people. Rice balls called ”Shingoro mochi” are tastey!! It is skewered mochi which are topped with a miso paste before being cooked over an open flame.

Ouchi-juku, thatch-roofed houses that were built more than 300 years ago line an old highway. Part of the village’s appeal comes from the fact that, although it looks almost exactly as it did during the time of the samurai, it is still a living, breathing town in which people live.
