A beautiful gorge is formed in the first part of the river that drains Lake Towada into the Pacific Ocean. The gorge is marked with a dozen of cascading waterfalls and carved-out rocks, and is one the most popular autumn-color viewing spots in the Tohoku region. A 9km trail along the stream is a leisurely walk to enjoy waters with ever changing colors.

Oirase Stream flows about 14 kilometers from Lake Towada, along the floor of the Oirase gorge. It meanders through over a dozen of cascading waterfalls and trees which turn their colors into a fresh green in summer time and vibrant colors of red, orange, and yellow from mid-October through early November. This makes Oirase Stream one the most popular destinations to see Autumn-color in Japan. There is a 9Km trail along the stream so you can walk around or rent a bicycle to pedal through a lush forest. I really enjoy coming here because I can feel peaceful and calm mind surrounded by the nature.
