Mount Inugatake


Take a trip to Mount Inugatake between late April and early May and you’ll find Metternich’s rhododendron (a Government-Designated Protected Species in Japan) in bloom; come autumn, the gorgeous foliage is a must-see. In any season, the surrounding area buzzes with eager hikers! With its peak at 1,131 meters (3711 feet) above sea level, the mountain’s hiking trail has been designated part of the Kyushu Nature Trail. A Rhododendron Festival is held every year in early May, with a variety of events to delight visitors!
