Shima Onsen, which is the perfect place to see the fall colors. The 12 kilometer stretch of town along Shima River from Shima Lake to Okushima Lake and Shakunage Falls is in itself a sight to behold in the fall.
There are many locations along the river from which to enjoy the fall colors. In the lower streams you can see Shima Lake and the famous oketsu. Oketsu are unique indentations in the riverbed that give the impression of pools within the flowing water of the river.
