In October 2020, Goldwin established a partnership with the Ministry of the Environment as an "Official Partner of National Parks."

Leveraging our expertise gained from years of experience, we aim to showcase the stunning landscapes and the joy of staying in Japan's world-renowned national parks. At the same time, we seek to stimulate the regions where these national parks are located and connect the rich natural environment to the future.

We hope that this initiative will allow more people to experience the beauty of national parks and foster a sense of closeness to nature in their everyday lives.

The vast Joshin’etsukogen National Park is the fourth largest in Japan. To be honest, we had a difficult time deciding where to visit, but this time, we decided to focus on Nozawa Onsen Village.

The Blessings Brought by Mount Hakusan:

Yutaro Someya Hakusan National Park

Hakusan National Park spans across four prefectures - Toyama, Ishikawa, Fukui, and Gifu. At its heart lies the Hakusan mountain range, which has long been the object of mountain worship. Known for its heavy snowfall, the mountains receive approximately 600 million tons of snow annually due to the northwestern seasonal winds. While winters are harsh, the melting snow provides abundant water that sustains the thriving life in the villages below. Let us embark on a journey climbing Mount Hakusan and experiencing the mountain life at its foothills, revealing the true essence of mountain worship.

This island has erupted countless times, making it a location where the Earth is laid quite bare.
This time, we were accompanied by The North Face athlete and climber, Toru Nakajima, as we visited Oshima. As someone with also a background in geological research, lets see how he perceived this unique land.
