If you have ever taken a stroll through Norikura Kogen during the summer, you would know that the plateau boasts a variety of natural landscapes and scenery, with hiking trails winding through them. You’ll come across waterfalls, ponds, primeval forests of silver fir, broadleaf forests of birch and oak, the plains of Ichinose, and undulating natural terrain. In winter, these sights are transformed into a fantastical wonderland of snow and ice, offering a thrilling snowshoe adventure.
Among these sights, one of the three great waterfalls of Mount Norikura, Sanbon Waterfall, stands out with its overwhelming beauty. In winter, it transforms into an ice waterfall, becoming even more striking and powerful.
Experience the serenity of the winter wilderness, and immerse yourself in a magical world of adventure. Why not join us on this unforgettable journey?
You can walk on the frozen plunge pool in winter. However, one wrong step could lead you to fall into the pool. Our guide will guide you with the utmost care. (Note: Depending on the condition of the day, we may not be able to guide you to the waterfall tour.)
There are many hidden downhill spots in Sanbon Falls, which only our experienced Raicho guides can show you. Downhill skiing is recommended for enjoying Norikura’s powder snow.
In winter, the needle-leaved trees that grow in Sanbon Falls are covered with pure white snow, creating a world that is pure white wherever you look. You will feel as if you have come to a different world.
※Snowshoes, poles, and gaiters are included in the tour fee.
