Hakuba Goryu, famous for its ski resort in the winter, changes its operation in the summer. From June to October, the mountain surface is covered with more than 2 million alpine plants. Take a gondola and lift to the summit where the alpine plant garden is located. There is a rare blue poppy that blooms in July and is nicknamed as the Himalayan blue poppy as it originally grows in an area of the Himalayans. In addition to seeing beautiful flowers, you will be able to enjoy a magnificent view of the Northern Japan Alps. Walk about 90 minutes around the garden, then head to the next destination, Wasabi farm. Relax and see green wasabi leaves and a beautiful spring water. Try fresh Wasabi for lunch.

*It is for all ages, however strollers cannot be used at the garden. Also, infants cannot ride a lift to summit.
