As the name suggests, the Jozankei View Hotel is surrounded by wonderful scenery, and from its elevated position offers beautiful views in all directions as far as the eye can see. The surrounding scenery changes color and tone in a delightful pattern throughout the year. This has inspired the hotel to hold its own "4 seasons photo competition" in which entrants are invited to submit photos showing the hotel and its scenery in any one of its 4 seasonal colors.

The great American poet Robert Frost once wrote:

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

I don't know if Mr. Frost ever made it to Japan, but I'm sure he would've been searching for the harder to find scenic spots in a country rich with things to see and do. Speaking for myself, whenever I go anywhere, I want to feel like I'm experiencing something different; something new. Sometimes tourist attractions and crowds of people can get too much. For those of you looking to find that road "less traveled by" in Japan, fear not! As ever, JAPANiCAN has the answer!
