Full-day Spring Snowshoe Tour on Mount Norikura

Using the Norikura Haruyama Bus that starts running in Golden Week, ride up to the Kuraigahara Sanso/Path to Katanokoya bus stops at an elevation of 2,350 meters. From here, we will don our snowshoes and head up to the world above the tree line, which we can explore to our hearts’ content! If the weather is nice, you can see not only Mt. Norikuradake, but you will also have a panoramic view of the Northern, Central, and Southern Japan Alps and the Yatsugatake Mountains.
