The Hanazono area is part of Grand Hirafu and thanks to its North/East aspect delivers amazing powder snow. The area borders on vast acres of the deepest snow you will ever find and there are several gates giving access to this “powder haven”.
The Hanazono restaurant at the base of the mountain is extremely popular, particularly for its famous “Crab Ramen” dish - a must try sensory delight for Japanese food afficionados. Whether tearing round the snowfields on a snowmobile, horseback riding through the woods or taking up the challenge of the famous Quiksilver Terrain Park and Halfpipe. Hanazono has something for every winter enthusiast.
