Aokiko in Spring

Summer Season

Hakuba may be a skiers heaven, but it is transformed into a tranquil retreat with something for everyone between May and November.


Road Cycling & Mountain Biking

Enthusiasm for mountain biking is growing, and Hakuba and the surrounding Nagano region are rich in exciting mountain bike trails offering scenic routes through small villages and around mountain lakes. Downhill mountain biking is also growing in popularity, with some of the ski resorts building new courses.



Hakuba has several breathtaking canyons that can be experienced from May to October. Canyoning involves swimming, jumping, using ropes and cascading down whitewater chutes. Late spring and early summer have the highest water flow due to snowmelt and spring rains. Our friends at Evergreen Outdoor Center offer several tours.
