Tsugaike Nature Park
Tsugaike Nature Park sits above Tsugaike Ski Resort in the Hakuba Valley.
Using the Tsugaike Ropeway, you can easily climb to 1,900-meter heights and trek among these precious highland marshes with colorful alpine flowers, verdant foliage and majestic views of the Hakuba Sanzan mountains.
A well-maintained trail meanders through the park, occasionally looping around small ponds along the way. The full-length course is 5.5 kilometers long and takes about 3.5 hours to walk. Visitors can also choose one of the shorter loops and return in to the gondola station in just an hour.
