Snowshoe Tours

While there aren’t many tours that run in the area, guests in Zao can go on a traditional Japanese wakanjiki snowshoe tour from the months of mid-January through to late March. This tour runs through the Juhyogen, or ice monsters, or through the Chuo Kohen Muhogen snowfield, both tough but rewarding tours with plenty to experience. The tours cost around 4,000 yen per person and require a two-day advance booking, but provide a great break from daily skiing.
