Kaida Kogen is a 1,100 to 1,300-meter-high plateau that extends along the base of Mt. Ontake. It is known for the Kisouma horse, Japan's only native breed.
Many sports facilities, hot springs, soba restaurants and farms dot this picturesque plateau, and you'll find incredible views of Mt. Ontake all around.
At Kisouma no Sato, you can interact with the Kisouma horses and even ride them for a small fee. For more information, check the link below.
