A Natural Landscape !

The Norikura Highlands is a popular place for the sports lover and leisure hiker alike. Summertime activities include hiking, cycling, running, mountain climbing, rock climbing and more. Norikura is the perfect spot for many wintertime activities too, such as skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

Beside these activities, you’ll find plenty to do all year round. Go to the top of the mountain in summer and enjoy the sunrise over a sea of clouds at the top of the Japan’s highest skyline. In the Spring enjoy the impressive ten-meter snow walls near the top of Mount Norikuradake the 10th highest mountain and one of the youngest volcanoes in Japan.

Lush forests, meadows full of flowers, lakes, ponds, waterfalls and hot springs are easily accessible and will offer you many great views of Norikura’s natural landscape. The snow cap can remain atop of the mountain until end of July. Norikura Highlands is certainly the go-to destination in Japan to beat the summer heat!
