What is Disc Golf?

Disc golf was designed for players from all walks of life and disc golf courses are often in public parks, open year-round and FREE to play on in all weather. Disc golf follows the rules of traditional golf, where players strive to complete each hole in the least number of strokes possible. However, instead of using a ball and clubs, players throw discs, much like Frisbees® but smaller and designed to fly with more precision for the sport. The sport truly is loved by many. Try it out for yourself! Check out the 18-hole disc golf course, located near The Lodge. This is the northernmost permanent course in Japan and it’s right here on base! Find more information about the course on the UDisc App.

Nature Trails

Open daily, dawn to dusk 
Located near The Lodge
*Only maintained in spring/summer

Northern Japan is teeming with natural sights to explore and e are lucky enough to have access to an abundant wilderness right here on Misawa Air Base. Take a hike and see many plant varieties indigenous to the area, such as Japanese wild ginger and mountain fern. Look out for the occasional wildlife sighting, to include foxes and serows. These trails start out as easy to explore but caution is suggested when hiking with little ones. The terrain becomes more difficult to conquer when venturing further in, with steep and winding paths, as well as marshes draped in foliage, that little ones may easily slip into.
