テキストがはいります

1.With a name that means “white mountain,” Hakusan is in one of the few areas in Japan that experiences heavy snowfall.

Ishikawa Prefecture is one of the top ten snowfall areas in Japan. Every year, from late November until late March (about four months), snow falls almost every day. Because of this, you can almost always see beautiful white snow falling from the sky, and there is always a high chance of getting virgin snow. In fact, you will sometimes even experience a mighty blizzard!
