Happiness of being surrounded by nature that changes its appearance with each season.

Daisetsuzan National Park, including Mt. Asahidake, is the largest national park in Japan with a total area of 23 hectares. Daisetsuzan Shirakaba-so is surrounded by the great nature of Daisetsuzan National Park.

In the morning, the trees are moist with morning dew, in the daytime you can enjoy the clear blue sky, and at night the sky is full of stars. When the weather is clear, full Mt. Asahidake can be seen from the lodge.

In spring, when the trees are budding, in summer when they are bright green, in autumn when the leaves are changing color, and in winter, when they are covered with deep snow.
