Self Drive - Towada to Nyuto Onsen

’m travelling to Towadako to catch the autumn foliage before heading to Nyuto Onsen. The fastest route suggested by google maps is to take route 103 and then 341. However i realised that I would be skipping the Hachimantai Alpine Route in that case. Is it worth the detour for the fail foliage?

Not sure how tight is your time allocation, the detour to Hachimantai on Rte 23 from Rte 341 is less than 30 min drive.

Depending on the exact date of travel, right now leaves are already starting to fall on top of Hachimantai Plateau whereas autumn colour is at its peak around the Onuma Pond area.

By the end of Oct in the region around Hachimantai consider going for Yuze Gorge near Yoneshiro River for koyo.
