Hiruzen Kogen Highlands

The beautiful highlands of Hiruzen in northern Okayama are popular for outdoor activities including skiing and snowboarding in winter, and camping, and cycling in the warmer months. The area is famed for its Jersey cows, and visitors to Hiruzen Jersey Land can see the cows grazing, and enjoy sweets and dairy products made from Jersey milk. Grapes, herbs, and flowers grow abundantly in the Hiruzen Kogen Highlands. Visit Hiruzen Winery to taste wine made from native grapes, and Hiruzen Herb Garden Herbill to enjoy herb gardens, lavender fields, and mountain views. A cycling route loops around the highland. Stop off along the way to try local dishes including Jersey milk ice cream, Hiruzen yakisoba (fried buckwheat noodles), and jingisukan, a popular dish of barbecued lamb and vegetables.
