"HAKUBA MOUNTAIN HARBOR" is a mountaintop terrace that offers a panoramic view of the verdant summit of Iwatake and the Northern Alps. Every year around October, you can enjoy the famous "three-stage autumn foliage" of the Northern Alps. The three-tiered autumn foliage is a beautiful gradation of the three mountains of the Hakuba area, consisting of "snow on the mountain tops," "autumn foliage on the hillsides," and "green trees at the foot of the mountains. This is one of the few places in Japan where you can see the entire 2200m difference in elevation.
