SUMMARY- COURSE OVERVIEW -
Encounter with a steep screech and the scenery that is typical to Otari village
SEASON : end of April to October
A winding road that continues from right after the start line breaks the cyclist’s heart. While fighting with the heart that is likely to surrender, continue climbing the hill through rustic houses and the terraced paddy . The finish point is a huge hotel with unexpectedly western appearance. Daibetto area, off the course a bit, is a recommended view spot on the way back.
COURSE PROFILE- COURSE MAP -
Right after the starting point awaits steep climb. Warming up is indispensable before starting.
A peaceful country scene , yet a tough climb continues, contrary to the first impression received from photographs.
A water mill at the middle of the course could be a resting point for those who climb at their own pace.
Along the course patches of fields and rice paddies can be seen maximizing tiny bits of flat ground.
Gaining elevation as the ski resort approaches opens the scenery. After the last steep climb, the finish will be there soon!
At Hotel Green Plaza Hakuba visitors can use their facilities such as hot spring, café, restaurants and shop.
Hotel Green Plaza
Daibetto, off the course, seems like scenery from an old folk story. If you have time to spare, worth passing by.
