Mount Anbou


Surrounded by mountains, Hida Furukawa is one of the most perfect spots in Japan to experience the majestic natural occurrence of morning fog, or asagiri, in autumn. With a hike to the top of the charming Mount Anbou, trekkers can catch a rare glimpse of rolls of fog enveloping the mountains and landscape of Hida Furukawa.

From early morning to around 10am on clear days with no wind the whole surrounding area becomes a natural wonder and one which makes the trip to the Mount Anbou observation deck worth every minute. 

Essential Information


5am—10am (morning fog), during autumn


Head toward Kamioka-cho from via Gifu Prefectural Road 75, the Hida Asagiri Road. After you come out of a tunnel, turn left and go straight. It takes 30 minutes to get to the deck from Hida-Furukawa Station by car or approximately two hours on foot.
