Christmas in Hakuba
Wondering what to do this Christmas and New Year? The festive season in the snowy Alps is always magical and every year there is some sort of celebration in resort to mark the occasion. Christmas is a far less commercial event in Japan than in the West and so you won’t find things publicized for months in advance - but you can always be sure of a glass of wine a few carols, a Christmas service and perhaps the odd firework or two! Many of the restaurants will put on a special festive menu with champagne and traditional Christmas dishes, so book in advance if you want to treat yourself to a meal out.
Annual events are held throughout the winter and summer seasons. Please see our calendar for listings
