Venue : Hakuba Green Sports Park When : Mid Aug 2024

Perhaps best known as a winter sports destination, Nagano's Hakuba area is equally as charming during green season. If you're looking for an excuse to visit, the Hakuba Summer Festival has been running for over three decades now, and it includes a variety of fun activities to enjoy a summer evening in this part of the country.

Held on the lush grounds of the Hakuba Green Sports Park, the event boasts food booths selling a host of delicious eats, stage performances, and a mesmerizing 45 minute long fireworks show to cap everything off.

Admission to the event itself is free of charge, but do bring yen if you plan on purchasing food or drinks.

Getting there

Hakuba Green Sports Park can be accessed in under 5 minutes by taxi (or 20 minutes on foot) from Hakuba Station, which is served by the JR Ōito Line. For those who opt to drive, on-site parking is available.
