Zao and the power of its lush nature
will stimulate your senses
Spring is a lovely time, which allows us to encounter newly-awakened animals and plants. In summer, the night sky sparkles with countless stars. Autumn covers the mountains with red leaves and their aroma. Winter brings forth the frost, painting the trees white and creating a wondrous silver and white scenery. All four seasons offer soul-shatteringly beautiful, mighty vistas. Besides, each of them provides an opportunity for various activities. Visit Zao to experience the breath of mighty nature with all five senses.
The best powdered snow and huge snow coverage! Ski slopes and courses with a variety of twists and turns. The symbol of Zao winters, the soft rime, is a fantastic sight that is illuminated at night. Snow trekking guided by Zao alpine instructors is also popular. We hope you come and experience "the largest snow resort area in northeastern Japan" where you will never run out of fun things to do.
