Beech trees are the most iconic of Japan’s broad-leaved trees and have a timeless beauty that transforms with the seasons. Experience the beauty of beech trees throughout the seasons in Kuromatsunai, known as Japan’s northernmost beech village. Each season reflects a different side of the forest. Spring sees the emergence of bright green young leaves, while in summer, gentle sunbeams pass through the lush greenery. However, if you love the fall colors, you have to come when the forest is at its most vibrant, before transforming into a sparkling white wonderland in winter.
