Nighttime Snow Hike in Mt. Sankaku
The night view of Sapporo is one of the three best night views in Japan. We will take you to the best night view spots by snowshoes or snowspike boots.
It takes about one hour of night hiking to reach the night view spot and we will climb up the mountain with headlamps and either snowshoes or snowspikes. The mountain at night has a surreal atmosphere. You will have the dynamic night view all to yourself in an empty private space.
