The Hachimantai-Appi Snow Festival is being held in Hachimantai until the 28th of February! There was a fireworks display celebrating the beginning of the festivities, and about 1,000 fireworks were set off at the Hachimantai Resort Panorama Ski Area!
During the Snow Festival, if you stay at a lodging facility in Hachimantai, you can get a discount on lift tickets for Hachimantai Resort and APPI!
(And even if you aren’t here for the ski resorts -there are lots of great trails where you can hike up to Mt. Chausu and ride down in the backcountry!)
