This photo was taken from the "Niseko Grand Hirafu" ski slopes located in Kutchan Town, Abuta District. (※photo not taken this year)
During the first few weeks of August, if the weather (and your luck) is good, from about 5:00 to 7:00am you can see some breathtaking scenery from this location.
Show up a bit early for a climb up the slopes of about 15 minutes, then relax and take in the beauty of the surrounding mountains.
