Despite being rainy season here in Hakuba, the outdoor adventures have continued. Coming from overseas, we welcomed an International School group last week for 7 days of fun in the Northern Japan Alps. Aside from a cultural day of visiting monkeys and Zenkoji temple, both kids and guides enjoyed hiking in the snow to up to Mt. Norikura-dake, canoeing on Lake Aokiko, canyoning in Kamoshika canyon, mountain biking the trails of Hakuba and even downriver rafting on the Shinanogawa. Needless to say, we all finished the week feeling a little tired, but with a world of great memories to take with us.
