Hakkoda Mountains

Beautiful Scenery Outdoor Activities
Free Admission

The Hakkoda Mountains, located in Aomori prefecture, are comprised of a string of volcanic peaks between Aomori City and Lake Towada that reach as high as 1585 meters. One of Japan's most famous mountain ranges, the Hakkoda Mountains are known for their hiking trails, ski resorts, and famous hot springs, and the area is also home to some of the best natural scenery Aomori has to offer. In winter, the Hakkoda Mountains are one of the only places in the world where visitors can experience "snow monsters," a natural phenomenon where fog freezes around trees, forming natural statues. Other popular activities in the area include taking cable car rides, visiting the Aomori Contemporary Art Centre, enjoying the Suirennuma Pond, and hiking in the marshlands.
