After a long snowy winter, summer is a magical time in the Japanese Northern Alps as the days lengthen and the snow retreats, the Alps burst into color with stunning alpine flowers. On your treks you’ll see the abundance and beauty of the alpine plant life and the many butterflies and insects they attract.

The Hakuba Goryu Alpine Botanical Garden is open everyday from June to October. In the gardens you can find over 300 different species of alpine and altogether 2 million plants. That is a lot of flowers.
