Lake Kiba Park
Winter’s the best time to catch crisp views of snow-clad Mt. Hakusan, and Lake Kiba is one of the best viewpoints (as the locals tell us).
Komatsu’s very own ski resort!
Open throughout winter.
The sight of snow-laced Yukitsuri, rope frames supporting trees in heavy snow, is a classic winter scene unique to the Hokuriku region. Along with the frozen ponds and snow-blanketed grounds, it makes for a romantic winter wonderland.
The mystery of the grand Buddha head gracing the grounds is heightened as it stands solemnly in the snow.
While known as an autumn spot, the rocky terrain of this temple in the mountains makes a perfect snow canvas, and the glimpses of red temple buildings and green cedar peaking through the white makes quite a fairy-tale scene.
