Let's go see snow flowers! ~Snowshoeing and Irori (hearth) experience in a beautiful forest!

Why don't you put on snowshoes and walk through the silvery white forest of beauties?

Wearing snowshoes (Western-style snowshoes - the heel rises up for easy walking), we will explore the beautiful forest in winter. Guided tours are available.

You may discover winter animals and winter mushrooms. You can feel the heartbeats of living creatures as you explore the quiet forest in winter. Satoyama experts living in Matsunoyama will guide you as they talk about the charm of Matsunoyama in winter and the traditional winter lifestyle.

The hearth will soothe you after a long day. The warmth of the charcoal fire and amazake (sweet sake) will warm your body and soul.

In case of inclement weather, admission to Kyororo is included in the tour, so you can also visit the Kyororo exhibit.
