Enjoy a hike 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 intermediate hike, good for hikers who want a little bit of a challenge, without completely wearing themselves out. This hike is a bit longer than our beginner hike, but is not too intense.


You will start at the bus stop Tairappyo-Tozan-Guchi (平標登山口), hike up to Matsudeyama, then Tairappyo, then come back down, using an alternate route that brings you back to the same bus stop, where you can catch the bus back down to town. If you book with us, you will be driven both ways. This should involve 4-5 hours of hiking.


Sign up with us and we'll send an experienced guide and provide transportation to and from the trail as well as a snack.
