Hike hard in Japan's nature-filled countryside...

This area may be known as Snow Country, but it’s not only beautiful in the winter. The springs and summers in Snow Country are gorgeous and mild, and the mountains lose their coat of white and instead put on a lush blanket of green. In autumn, the mountains change again to a veritable rainbow of yellows, oranges, and reds.


If you’re in Japan this spring, summer, or fall, why not surround yourself in nature and take a hike? We have prepared hikes of many different intensities, and this page is for booking our most intense hike, good for experienced hikers who love a challenge. This hike is longer and more grueling than the others.


This hike will start easy with a ride up a Ropeway to Tenjindaira, and then you will summit two peaks, and finish at Tsuchitaru Station, 6-8 hours later, depending on pace and how long the breaks are.


25,000 JPY for up to 3 people, then 2,500 JPY more for each additional person—if you would like a guide familiar with the trail to join you, sign up today! We'll send an experienced guide and provide transportation to and from the trail as well as a snack. This rate includes tickets on the ropeway.
