The Hakuba Valley
Hakuba is situated on the main island of Honshu, in the heart of the Japanese Alps; the mountain scenery is spectacular, with huge rugged peaks towering above the ski resorts that are situated throughout the valley. The combination of abundant snow with world-class skiing and boarding, lifts and gondolas, and excellent grooming facilities, makes Hakuba a place that has to be experienced to be truly appreciated.
