Incredible views of the North Japan Alps in this 3-day hiking trip in the three mountains of Hakuba, together with a certified mountain guide.
Hakuba is a town in Nagano Prefecture, 270 kilometers away from Tokyo.
During this trip, we’ll visit Hakuba’s three famous mountains: Mount Shiroumayari (2903 m), Mt Shakushi (2812 m) and Mt Shiroma (2932 m), which are all known as “Hakuba Sanzan”.
Besides enjoying unique and amazing views of the Northern Japan Alps, if the weather is good, you will be able to contemplate all the way to the sea of Japan.
The first day of our trip we’ll hike to a fantastic outdoor onsen (hot spring) in the middle of the mountains. At Hakubayari onsen they switch between male and female use depending on the time. You are not allowed to use soaps, so you’ll just enjoy dipping in the onsen… a totally relaxing experience!
Another highlight of this trip is visiting Mt Shirouma, which is one of the “100 famous mountains for flowers” in Japan. Even during the ‘tsuyu’ (rainy) season the alpine flowers in this spot are beautiful!
If you like mountain traverse treks and want to visit a wonderful area of Japan, please contact me! I will be happy to be your guide and show you my favorite spots in Hakuba.
You should arrive near Hakuba Happo the day before. We’ll meet there at 8 am and start the trek.

Jun is a responsible and reliable guide. He is also knowledgeable on the local flora and fauna and managed to show us quite a few interesting alpine flowers, birds and animals. He is kind and helpful and converses well in English. I will not hesitate to recommend him to any anyone needing an English speaking guide in Japan.
Just back from Hakuba –Japan and I’m so pleased to confirm we got such a great experience with Iwao who has provided a service above all expectations. Indeed assisting a family confronted to a new environment requires a certain level of patience and attention and all the family appreciated his sense of responsibilities and seriousness which allowed us to really enjoy this region by experiencing touring, hicking and of course skiing in immaculate powder. Iwao was very discreet but always acted to ensure we could take the best of all Hakuba mountains could offer to us during these 5 days.This experience will for sure remain in all our minds for long and this will be mainly thanks to Iwao ! Best, Arnaud
We had a wonderfull ski touring trip with Iwao in Gunma. Iwao brought us in various beautifull landscapes to found very good spring snow. He is a very professional guide that can adapt to clients will and conditions! We had great time sharing our experiences about nature and mountains. The second day, we had a long tour with beautiful views on gunma\'s region and finissing along a river in an amazing forest. It was great fun to wait the last train in the midel of nowhere at sunset to come back to our village! Iwao has perfectly organised the trip bringing me to nice local onsen, restaurant and hôtel! Wonderfull trip to recommand!
