Nice walk to Hakuba Ski Jump Arena from Happo Village. It was great to visit the arena which allows you an awesome view of Hakuba and surrounds from the K-120 jump platform. Heaps of displays and information/history about the Nagano 1998 Winter Olympics. Gives you a very real insight into how brave you would have to be to slide and... More

One of the venues from the 1998 Winter Olympics, the ski jump arena is a strangely compelling thing to visit. Even though I am terrified of great heights, I braved the chairlift (that has no lap bars to hold you in by the way) to the tower, then took the glass lift to the viewing lounge for awesome views out...

The location is a great reminder of thenOlympic spirit . Standing on top of the jump tower, viewing the surrounding area , looking into the Hakuba valley is an unforgettable experience

This venue is probably best visited in Summer. I have visited in winter but access becomes tricky once the stairs get snowed in. It is a great bit of nostalgia with the added thrill of doning a bib from the 1998 olympics and standing on the podium.

If you're in the area it's worth passing by and checking out the Hakuba Olympic Ski Jump Stadium. You can take a chairlift to an observation tower where there is a small ski jump museum (included in the cost of the chair lift). You can get some sweet view of Hakuba in case you don't snowboard/ski and haven't been up... More

Left over from the 1998 Olympic games these two ski jumps remain as very important features for the Japanese jumping teams. Even if no jumping is taking place they are still impressive structures.

Interesting to see what crazy people do. You can go out to the start points on the jumps, but once you have checked these out the main tower is fairly bare.

This jump was part of the Nagano Winter Olympics and much of the memorabilia is on show inside the tower. It's about a 20 min walk down the road from the centre of town. Catch the chair up to the tower ( 300 yen) and then take th lift to top of the main towers where all the information and... More

We walked over to the Olympic ski jump area. It was well worth it. You catch the chair for 300yen up to the tower then you can go up in the lift and walk all the way to the starting point. It's all open so wear something warm. If you don't like heights, the way out to the platform can... More
