It is interesting to see the snow scene in winter, but it is not bad to see the distant snow mountains in spring. The contrast between the flowers that bloom one after another and the snow mountains in the distance is wonderful. In addition, in spring, you will be able to go to heavy snowfall areas, which were closed in winter due to too much snow. For example, Tateyama (Toyama Prefecture) introduced at the end of this page is crowded with many tourists from mid-April every year!
