Yamagata in Winter

Making the most of the snow

Yamagata is a prefecture with very extreme seasons: in summer, temperatures regularly soar above 30°C, whilst in winter it receives some of the highest snowfall in Japan.

With snow festivals, winter sports and plentiful onsen, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
