Tsugaike Nature Park

Walking in Hakuba

At an altitude of 1900m, Tsugaike Nature Park is an ideal place for families and novice hikers to experience the alpine environment. Half the fun lies in taking the required 'Panorama Way' gondola and cable car (adult/child return ¥3600/2050) from Tsugaike Ski Resort.

It's a 5.5km round-trip walk across the verdant moors from the park entrance to the observation platform, affording majestic views of snowy Shirouma-dake.
