Daikokuzawa (大黒沢) is an iconic volcanic valley descending from Iwaki-san's (岩木山, 1625m) summit, popular among serious ski tourers seeking a long, rewarding day out on western Aomori's classic volcano. Situated in the Tohoku region in northern Honshu, the area receives apocolyptic amounts of snow during January and February, lingering well into the spring months. This route ascends Iwaki-zan's southeastern slopes from the top of the Hyaku-sawa Ski Area, and descends towards the east-northeast. You'll need someone to shuttle you back to your car at the ski area, but the hassle is worth it - this may be one of the longest descents in the area (1200m vertical loss).
