Towada, Oirase, HakkodaTowada-Hachimantai National Park



Head to Hakkoda for the best possible powder snow!

This ski area is located at the foot of Mt. Tamoyachi in the Hakkoda Mountain Range in Towada-Hachimantai National Park. The winter attractions of the area include the frost-covered Aomori-todomatsu fir trees (nicknamed "snow monsters") and dry powder snow. Another is the ample depth of the accumulated snow. The ski area lies in a magnificent, expansive field. There are three runs: Kansuizawa, Furikozaka, and Slalom.

Feel free to make use of the ski school, back country guides, and snowshoe guides. There is also a restaurant. For details, search for "Hakkoda Park" online.
