Town of Yamatsuri is located at the southernmost tip of Fukushima prefecture. Nostalgic rural landscapes spread out across the town as in the surroundings of abundant nature: the southern part of the Abukuma Mountains to the east; the mountain range, including sacred Mt. Yamizo to the west; and the Class A river, Kuji River, cutting through the heart of the town. Beautiful scenery can be enjoyed throughout the four seasons, notably, the cherry blossoms, azaleas and autumn colors seen on Mt. Yamatsuri in Okukuji Prefectural Nature Park, and the 48 waterfalls seen in Takigawa Valley.
