Join our snowshoeing tour and view the natural splendors that can be seen only during the snow season in Eastern Hokkaido

Winter time in Lake Kusharo/ Lake Mashu offers many attractive spots to enjoy,
such as a variety of hot springs, swans, and a frozen Lake Kusharo.

This is a very unique tour,
which combines a half-day at Lake mashu and then a half day at Mt.Mokoto.

You can not only explore the area on showshoes, but you can also customize your tour with whatever else you feel like.

How about resting at an outdoor hot spring,
walking on a frozen lake,
watching the swans,
or taking a coffee break in a cafe amidst a beautiful winter setting.

In addition to the snowshoe waliking tour, we will make up a one-of-a-kind tour according what you'd like to do that day.

Enjoying the local food is always one of the most fun parts of travelling. There are several local restaurants that we can recommend for lunch.
  • Freezing fresh air, snow crystal and the wild animals are waiting for you.

  • Lets roll over on the powder snow.

  • We proud of our flexibility to arrange the tour by the condition of the field and the weather for you.
