Mt. Naka Arasawa Perpetual Snow
Uonuma City
Perpetual snow and Alpine plants
The year-round snow makes it one of the top 100 hiking trails in Japan. With its moutain vegetation flourishing in the deepest chill of winter, this course is full of highlights. The seasonal alpine plants for both summer and autumn will begin to bloom in the fall. When the leaves begin to turn in early October, flowers still bloom on the mountain slopes, and you can enjoy the marvellous scenery as honey bees and butterflies flit about. A 40 minute hike will take you from the trailhead to the observation deck.
The suggested season is summer and autumn.
