Travel Guide - Mount Hakkoda-san

InformationInformation

Mt. Hakkoda-san consists of several peaks, including Mt. Odake and Mt. Akakuradake, and is home to pristine wildlife. It takes on different faces in tune with each season with beautiful colors of fresh foliage in spring, deep greens in summer, autumn leaves, and then a white, snow-covered landscape in winter. Trekking or climbing Mt. Hakkoda can be a great way to enjoy Japan's varied seasons. There is also the ropeway which takes you for a 10-minute "walk in the air" over a distance of 2.5 km to the summit of Tomoyachi-dake. The panoramic view of Hakkoda Mounatin and Mutsu Bay from the peak is superb.
Hakkoda is a mecca of snow sports. As well as skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing in Hakkoda's renowned winter wonderland is becoming more and more popular. National route 103, or also called the "Hakkkoda-Togawa Gold Line", is closed during the winter months, but re-opens on April 1st every year and allows you to drive along the snow corridor, which can reach up to 9 meters in height.
