Hakuba Craft Beer Festival & Adventure Weekend


The Hakuba Craft Beer Festival (Craft Beer Marche in Hakuba) is an annual two day outdoor beer and music festival bringing together breweries and performing artists from all over Japan in one beautiful location. Located in the Hakuba Valley, with the stunning Japanese Alps in the background the event is the perfect beer drinking environment.

This weekend trip also features the option to try canyoning, mountain biking at the Iwatake Mountain Bike park or a hike to the summit of Karamatsu-dake (2696m) which is around a 6 hour round trip from the top of the Happo-One lifts. These extra activities do not have to be decided until during the trip. Looking forward to this weekend!

Trip Reviews

Great trip with TSC, Hakuba is beautiful in the summer and the craft beer fest was a lot of fun and delicious! If I did it again, I would do a hike on the first day in the afternoon and attend the festival in the evening.

So. Much. Fun! The first day was the festival which was a blast. Second day I got to just wander around and go up the mountain. Awesome! And the hotel was super nice with an osen that my tattoo'ed self can use which is always nice to find.
