Yamagata is the capital city of Yamagata Prefecture located in the Tōhoku region of northern Japan. Yamagata is located in mountainous southeast Yamagata Prefecture. The Mogami River passes through the city, which includes Mount Zaō within its borders. In this region is located the beautiful and photogenic and hotspring town of Ginzan Onsen.
Its literal meaning is ‘silver mountain,’ the location became famous for its old-Japan look and feel after it was used for the site of the period drama Oshin. Yossy, the photographer has visited the picturesque town on various occasions and it is shown to you by his unique photos below.
