January to May
Nozawa Onsen, Nagano
2 to 8 persons
7,000 - 15,000 JPY
Let's explore Nozawa's winter wonderland with snowshoes in fresh and deep snow. Look for animal tracks, feeding marks, and maybe even see an actual “kamoshika”, the Japanese serow, a Japanese Antelope! We will also tell you stories and legends related to each field and give you a detailed lecture if you are a first timer. This is a completely private tour, so that the tour will be tailored to the level of each participant. ＜Pricing＞ If you plan to stay overnight in a tent on the snow, the necessary expenses (tent rental, food, etc.) will be charged accordingly.
