Sunrise at Mt Norikura

Catch the bright red sunrise at Mt Norikura.

Even if you are not typically an early-bird, it’s worth getting up early to see the sunrise at Mt Norikura if you are in town. Catching a view of the sunlight coming through the sea of clouds surrounding the impressive Japan Alps is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. From July to September, special buses run between Tatamidaira and the sunrise viewing location.
