Hakusan Seymour is located in Hakusan city in the southern region of Ishikawa Prefecture. It used to be known as Kanazawa Seymour, or the even longer name Kawachisenjo Onsen Kanazawa Seymour. The nearby Kawachisenjo Onsen is a popular hot springs area. It is within easy reach of Kanazawa city and both the ski hill and onsen are popular with day-trippers from that region. Hakusan Seymour originally opened in 1987.
Ishikawa Prefecture is in the Chubu region of central Japan. Most of the ski hills in Ishikawa Prefecture are in and around Hakusan, Komatsu and the capital city of Kanazawa city. With the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen line to Kanazawa since spring 2015, the region has become more accessible to more people.

At the time of writing more than 60% of the ski hills in Japan have still not updated their own information for the upcoming season. We are continuing to manually update the information on these ski resort pages of SnowJapan but for the moment things are unavoidably a mix of old and new. In most cases ski resorts open and close around the same dates each season, so even if the planned season dates shown on this page are still from the 2017-2018 season, that is usually a good indication of what to expect this time round.

It is very important to us that the information presented on SnowJapan is correct and up-to-date. Checks and updates are made throughout the year. If you find information that you feel needs checking and updating, please let us know by contacting us. We appreciate your support.
