springspringApril – June

One of Midagahara spring delights is to put on snowshoes or cross-country skis and trek out over the snow.
About 5 m - 7 m of snow builds up in Midagahara in the average year.
You will be able to walk on courses only available when there is snow. If there is snow on tall trees, you can see the treetops right before your eyes.
It is also fun to search for the tracks of rabbits and other animals.

autumnAutumnSeptember - October

In late September, the green of the mountains slowly begins to change its color. By the start of October, riders of the Highland Bus will see the new colors in the trees: the red of Japanese rowans and the yellow of the maples.
The wetlands are dyed orange, accented by glittering, mirror-like ponds that dot the wetland surface.

  • The mountain face changes its color.
  • Autumn colors of grass in the wetlands.
  • The boardwalk that weaves its way through the wetlands.
