Snow Sightseeing

Nature

Winter in Japan is a special season, as certain natural sites only reveal themselves once the temperature drops and snow starts to fall. The terrain and climate of each area lends itself to a range of natural phenomena including the world-renowned, towering “snow monsters” of Zao, the powerful natural force of the drift ice on the Sea of Okhotsk, and the vast white walls of the snow corridors. Discover Japan's varied snowy landscapes, from foothills to the peaks of the Japan Alps, for a winter adventure like no other.
