Part of the drive from Lake Towada to Hakkoda was beautiful and scenic with all the trees turning into different colours at certain stage. Ride on the Cable Car was also good as you could see the "Sea of Leaves" below you but patience was needed as the line could be long at times.

It is a fair drive, and the rope way up is a good viewing platform, but once we were on top, the fog came in and visibility became limited. Looks like it would have lots of potential on a clear day, though.

I went to see the snow monsters (snow covered trees) and the weather was clear. The monsters were amazing, and the views fantastic. I had a lot of fun, recommend the onigiri at the restaurant at the top. The snowshoeing tour we did was short and a bit of a disappointment since we just walked to where we had already... More

The weather was not great and the first trip to the top of the ropeway was pretty freaky but most memorable. The 2 main runs marked from the top of the mountain are both fantastic with plenty of options to discover through the trees. When the weather is really abysmal, ski off the 2 chair lift for some groomed runs... More

It is magic place. It takes one hour to reach Hakkoda mount by bus from Aomori JR station. Rope way leads to the top of mount. You may walk and enjoy beauty and silence on 1,5 km. I was impressed by highland nature!

Hiking at Hakkoda in autumn is just beautiful - the colours of the leaves are just stunning. There's a variety of different walks to meet your needs and plenty of others around also hiking. Be sure to visit Sukayu Onsen afterwards!

after we stored our baggage in 酸湯 and had a quick soba lunch in the restaurant nearby, we headed to the trail with the entrance just next to the onsen. It's been raining for the last few days, so the walking trail was full of mud. Because of the poor walking conditions, the schedule was behind our planned time. We... More

It's the Mecca of Spring Skiing/back country in Japan. Plenty of great places to stay all over the Mountain range. I've been going up there for the past 10 years and no 2 years has the nature been the same. Just amazing.
