THE GREEN SEASON IN HAKUBA
Hakuba is just as beautiful in the green season as it is in the winter season. Spring brings life back to the valley and you can have the best of both worlds, with Skiing and Backcountry touring going into May. Sakura season is one of the most breath taking events in Japan and Hakuba provides some spectacular scenery to view the blossoms. In Autumn the Hills are drenched in colour as the leaves start to fall off and hills and alpine get ready for the long cold winter ahead.
There are many activities in Hakuba for the green season, Hakuba turns into one big outdoors adventure play ground. The lifts are open and ready to transport you into the Alpine for Hiking, onto the Hills for mountain biking, or even just find a nice place for a picnic. So don't think that Hakuba is only a snow destination, experience a part of Japan that most people don't know it exists, you won't regret it thats for sure.
