We will use snowshoes or nature skis to walk through the forest. The beautiful conifer trees covered in snow remind us of foreign countries, and these rich forests remind us of the passage of time. We will follow in the footsteps of plants and animals that are trying their best to survive the harsh cold and enjoy a tea time along the way. During tea, you will enjoy the quietness of the forest. This plan is recommended for those who want to enjoy both the lake and the forest. <About seasons> Winter: January through March, depending on snowfall. <Number of people and gear> Up to 3 snowshoers and 3 skiers at a time <Pricing> Per person 10,000 yen/person for 1 person 2 participants: 8,000 yen/person 3 or more people: 7,000 yen/person
