MiyazakiKirishima, Ebino Plateau
Ebino Plateau is located at an altitude of 2,450 meters (8,000 ft) and surrounded by the Kirishima Mountains, including Mt. Karakuni. The plateau’s summer is cool with temperatures between 17℃ and 23℃ (62-72F). In winter it becomes a winter wonderland with snow covered trees. At the end of August, the Japanese Silver Grass on the plateau changes color to ‘ebi-iro’ (reddish –purple). The plateau then looks like it has been carpeted in red. *The view from Mount Karakuni is especially beautiful.
