Tsugaike Kogen – Summer
Tsugaike Kogen is located towards the North end of the Hakuba Valley and is one of the main kicking off points to Hakuba’s peaks. During the summer the Tsugaike rope-way from the top of the resort gives access to the national park. Here there are a number of walk ways and routes through the highland as well as a small climbing wall and information center. If you are looking to head up higher to Mt. Norikura and beyond there are access check points from the information center at the entrance of the national park. Be sure to make a stop for an ice cream and a meal at the restaurants at the top of the ropeway before heading out.
At the gondola mid-station there is Tsugaike Wow a ropes and adventure course offering tightrope biking, climbing tower and more; great fun for the whole family.
