Takeshita Street In the Harajuku section of Tokyo is next level busy with young people and tourists mingling shoulder to shoulder on the narrow winding street. The area is filled with awesome quirky shops, excellent food stands, and hip second hand clothing stores. 👻⁣ ⁣ It’s an intense experience but one that will undoubtably be memorable. Other close by attractions include #meijishrine and #yoyogipark ⁣ ⁣ Add #harajuku to your Tokyo list. It’s worth a visit. ✌️📸 @abekislevitz

Hakuba is unique in that it is surrounded by a wealth of cultural experiences ⛩🚄🐒🗻🏯 One of the best is Matsumoto Castle ⁣ ⁣ Built in 1504 Matsumoto Castle is the oldest surviving castle in Japan and has been recognized as a national treasure by the government for its historical significance, unique design, and impressive structure 🏯⁣ ⁣ While most Japanese castles are painted white, the leadership of the Ogasawara Clan ordered the castle painted black to instill fear in the hearts of would be attackers. ⚔️😳⚔️ The color led to the castle being nicknamed #CrowCastle (#烏城)⁣ ⁣ The castle has six floors with elaborate defense stations intended to hold of a siege attack ⚔️🏯⚔️ The castle is also unique in that it sits in an open plain where as most Japanese Castles are perched on large hills making a siege more difficult.⁣ ⁣ Details: Visitors can access the castle grounds free of charge and tour the castle for ¥600 😀⁣ ⁣ Access from Hakuba Station: JR Oita Line to Kita Matsumoto Station followed by a 1k walk through a beautiful historic town. 🚞🚶‍♂️🚶‍♀️⁣ ⁣ One way Cost: ¥1,140 (Free with JR Pass) 🤗 📸 @japanexplorer

Tokyo sits 3 hours from Hakuba and is a must visit for anyone traveling to the valley.

Thurs, April 11: Got some wind blowing this morning, along with snow and fog, so a pretty stormy start to the day. Decent amount of snow looks to have fallen overnight, 10-20cm at least on the upper slopes. So if you up for it you'll get some freshies. May be some windhold early, but the day should settle and the coming days look pretty nice. Looks like a suck it and see kinda day. - Steve Lee @hakubapowdertours 📸 @ryuuzouhirooka in the Hakuba Back Country yesterday
