Make Your Own Senbei Experience (Yamanaka Senbei)

Established over 110 years ago, the main store of Yamanaka Senbei serves up handcooked senbei rice crackers. Just like in times of old, they use a traditional brick oven to cook their crackers over a charcoal fire. This experience is highly recommended for foodies and tourists alike, as you’ll be able to enjoy senbei fresh from the charcoal oven! (Reservations are advised for the senbei-making experience)

Sannokura Plateau Sunflower Field

In summer, the 5.4 hectares of land within the Sannokura Ski Resort grounds become painted yellow with 1.5 million sunflowers. The sunflower field consists of 3 main areas, which can be enjoyed from early August to early September. Also, visitors to Sannokura Plateau between March and June can enjoy impressive views of fields of bright, yellow canola flowers. What's more, no matter the season, the panoramic views overlooking the Aizu basin from an elevation of 650 m make a visit to Sannokura Plateau very worthwhile.
