You will see a winter wonder land after walking only a few minutes through the forests in front of the lodge. In the spring season, many of wild flowers and cherry blossoms welcome you, and you will feel green and nature shower in nice and warm weather in summer time. Kouyo, colored leaves, is a pleasure from the nature in autumn season in Hakuba.

Small letter pads, post cards, and prints (in frames) of the drawings are available, and those must be special gifts of Hakuba!
Various wild flowers and a wonderful natural spaces show Hakuba as a beautiful village in every seasons of the year; cherry blossoms are blooming and dogtooth violets show pretty faces from the ground in the spring, and hydrangeas make your heart warm during the rainy season in the summer time.

ARTIST:Takayuki Tsuno
Was born in Kochi Prefecture in 1946, and grew up in Osaka. In 1972, moved to Hakuba and started color pencil drawings back in a decade since he wanted to preserve a lasting image of Hakuba's natural beauty. He has displayed many of the drawings in his Gallery & Pension NOICHIGO. His drawings are mainly wild and mountain flowers, leaves, and plants which are seen in Hakuba. His artwork numbers more than 500 currently, and its selling has been started in 2003, and the following year the art gallery was opened. He recently started working on water color paint beside color pencils.
Due to an inquiry from Kawazu-cho in Shizuoka Prefecture, he drew an original drawing of Kawazu Sakura, a cherry blossom in Kawazu. He's been working on some drawings used for letter pad printed by Hozuki Publicity.
Sensitive lines and paintings, and soften colors to express nature's warmth are the features of Takayuki's drawings.

At the same time as an artist, he works as one of 'Hakuba Meisters in ART category` who introduce Hakuba's great points with their special abilities in variety of categories such as art, outdoor, culture, and climbing.
