Hakuba is a mecca for hiking in Japan and every day in the green season hikers board gondolas to reach the upper areas of the ski fields and then carry on to hike the Northern Japanese Alps. If you have ever wished to trek Japan, Hakuba is a fantastic place to do so with a variety of options - half-day, full-day and multi-day hikes. We also offer relaxing Nature Walks such as a half-day walk to the natural Hime River spring. On all tours you will be introduced to colourful Japanese wildflowers of the season as well as native birds and animals.Location

Team up with a group of other like-minded hikers and climb Japan's 3776m volcanic monolith. From the 5th Station we will work our way up the switch-backing trail, pass through an ancient tori (gateway) and come to the summit where we can see 360 degrees and look into the huge crater. The ascent takes approximately 4hrs, and we can get up there to view the sunrise from the peak. Trek Japan's ultimate volcano with us!
The easiest time of year to climb Mt Fuji is July and August. In other times of year, you cannot officially climb Mt Fuji but this is not so much a legal issue as one of safety. We can organise and have run hikes up Mt Fuji in April followed by skiing descents but this is an extreme endeavour involving considerable preparation and a degree of risk that must be understood, as well as requiring advanced skills. Please contact Evergreen for details.
Trips can be arranged from overnight to up to seven days of trekking through the Japanese Northern Alps.
There are multiple routes available and hut-to-hut, camping, or other arrangements can be made based on the needs of your group. Contact us for details to plan your trek of the Japanese Northern Alps.
