Morning mist blankets the Oze marshland at the foot of the mountain as the sun rises. At 5:30 a.m., the whole scene is covered in a translucent veil of light draped over the trees, flowers and the mountain-accented horizon.
At this time during late July, the view at the base of Mt. Shibutsu (至仏山) in the early morning is nearly as spectacular as the view from the mountain top. Mt. Shibutsu, located in Gunma Prefecture, separates Oze marsh and the rest of the prefecture.
