Must see · Ski Area · Hiking Trail
During summer at Kurumayama Highland, you'll wander meadows peppered with alpine wildflowers, providing lofty views across the surrounding hills and mountains. Standing at an elevation of (1,925 m), you'll need to take a chair lift to the summit, with the 15 minutes in transit offering 360-degree views of the hillside. From here you can take various hikes to the distinctive surrounding environments, including wetlands and primeval forest. Bring along some sturdy boots, snacks, as well as some warmer layers, as it can get chilly at these altitudes. During the winter months the area transforms into a ski resort with eight separate runs to suit all skill levels, and a play park for children. Our Chino road trip planning app makes visiting Kurumayama Highland and other Chino attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
