【2013年6月13日】 昭和村 の大自然と 矢の原湿原 ( June 13, 2013: Great nature of Showa Village and Yanohara Marsh)

本日は、金山(かねやま)町 の 玉梨温泉 を出発し、国道400号 と 401号 で、昭和村 の山岳地帯を越えて、南会津町 の 南郷 地区へ入る。
Today I left Tamanashi Hot Spring of Kaneyama Town and by National Route 400 and 401 I went through the height of Showa Village and finally arrived at Nango area of Minamiaizu Town.

The actual route was shown in the map below. (The route and altitude data were from GPS log data. The details of the map can be seen by clicking the map.)

昭和村 に入り、しばらくすると、写真の「からむしの里」が現れる。ここは、昭和村 の特産の からむし織 (アサに近い生地)のPRと、トイレなどの休み処を兼ねている。
Soon after entering Showa Village I found "Karamushi-no-Sato" building which meant "Home of Karamushi". Here, Karamushi cloth which was a specialty of showa Village and which was similar to hemp was presented. Also this was a rest stop including Men's and Women's rooms and restaurant.

このすぐ先で、国道401号 へ分岐し、しばらく登ると、大芦 の集落があり、そこに写真の洒落たカフェ「 大芦家 」があります。このすぐ先で、矢の原湿原 へ分岐する。
The road branched to National Route 401 just ahead of this spot followed by some hill climb. Then Oashi village appeared and I found nice cafe called "Oashiya" as shown in the picture above. And soon after here I branched to Yanohara Marsh.
