Kamikochi Snowshoe Tour

Experience the beauty of nature and take a winter journey now.
The winter landscape of Kamikochi is surrounded by silence. When you visit the area during its winter closure, you can witness the unadulterated beauty of nature. As it was once called the “place where gods descend,” the morning in Kamikochi during the winter when the mountains are illuminated by the sun is a particularly awe-inspiring sight, surpassing any other seasonal view. The area is full of charm, but there is also potential danger, such as avalanches and poor visibility, so it’s crucial to be cautious as misjudging the weather could be risky.
※There is a 6% chance of tours being cancelled due to inclement weather. (Based on Raicho tours in FY2022)

Points of Interest

Hoarfrost is formed when supercooled mist droplets are blown by the wind onto surfaces like trees, and freeze into ice crystals. It looks like a snow flower and creates an indescribable beauty resembling white flowers blooming on the trees. ※ Please note that hoarfrost may not be visible depending on the weather conditions of the day.
※There is a 20% chance of seeing fog and ice on Raicho tours (Raicho tour data for FY2022)

When the sunrise illuminates the hoarfrost on the mountain, it sparkles like diamond dust, creating a mystical atmosphere.

Reflection is the phenomenon where the scenery is reflected on the surface of the water. Since there is often no wind in the early morning, the chances of seeing a reflection that looks like it was reflected in a mirror increase.
