Soaring peaks, glacial valleys, lava plateaus and dense forests make up this diverse park
Some of Japan's tallest mountains make up Chubusangaku National Park. Most of the year, snow carpets these lofty peaks, but when the snow melts in late summer, the hiking is spectacular.
In colder months, the area is best explored by snowshoe, particularly on a tour to Zengoro Falls. A bus through the snow corridors of Mount Norikura shouldn't be missed. In warmer months, the park is an excellent place to connect with nature on bike tours, stream-climbing expeditions and ecotours.
