Nasu Area

The Nasu area, in the northeastern part of the prefecture, is famous for the imperial villa located there, and is one of Japan’s premier resort areas with its expansive highlands.

There are also many family-friendly facilities like Safari Park, amusement parks, and hot spring facilities like Shiobara Onsen.
