Visiting Nagano and Gifu prefectures, our new self-guided tour will amaze you with incredible views of Japan's Northern Alps. As you head into the Alps, you'll be able to take part in snowshoeing, a wonderful way to experience the winter landscape. Visit the peaceful castle town of Hida-Furukawa and take in the history and culture of the region.

With some peaks at 3,000 meters, the views are absolutely breathtaking from any angle. Explore pristine winter landscapes with a full day of guided snowshoe walking. The gentle scenic walk takes you through serene snow-covered forest before taking in views of impressive frozen waterfalls, frozen lakes, and grand vistas of the surrounding Alpine mountain range. Transportation from your inn, snowshoes, walking poles and lunch are provided.
