Welcome to our Beech Forest!!

The beech forest, typical of Japan's deciduous trees, has a certain sort of beauty imparted by the passing of the seasons.
It's the kind of beauty that you'll never get tired of, no matter how many times you see it.
Let's enjoy walking with us in a Northernmost Beech Forest.

The Beech trees bud every year around 10th May.
The newly unfurling leaves are a translucent pale green.
You'll be able to enjoy a quiet stroll in Spring Beech Forest.

With the coming of summer, the new green of spring deepens it's color.
The vibrant summer leaves catch the sun's harsh rays,
and you will feel filtered sunlight that comes through the leaves of a tree.

Autumn is the most beautiful season in Beech Forest.
The leaves which offer such cooling shade in the summer begin to shift from green to gold,
and soon every tree in the area has donned a dazzling array gilt and scarlet.

Winter in all over Kuromatsunai is covered with the snow.
Once you wear the traditional snow shoes in Kuromatsunai Town, you will realize it is easy to walk on the snow.
