Activities and Experience
So Many Wonders in the Forest! Walking Tour in Shirogane Primeval Forest.
Forget everything you thought you knew about the forest. When you explore it with a nature guide, you'll discover many wonderful surprises!
A fallen tree that resembles a green swiss roll cake, the roots of a tree that appear to be on tiptoes... there's a reason behind all of this, the beautiful craft that the forest has built up over such a long time.
Stroll through the mysterious trees and go hunting for the mysteries of the forest!
Mt. Tokachi Mini Trekking
Set off from an observation platform halfway up Mt. Tokachi in Daisetsuzan National Park and enjoy about an hour of mini trekking.
You will need to climb a little as the view unfolds below you-- even those who are not confident in their strength can enjoy this experience!
In an average year, there is still snow on the ground at the top of the course until about the start of June, so you can even enjoy a little fun in the snow.
In autumn, you can see a panorama of the earliest autumn colours in Japan!
