Service Description

For this experience, you’ll meet up with your Dohoku Local and head out to a path alongside the Biei River. In winter, this path is a popular running and cycle route but in winter, it’s covered in snow. This means it’s only accessible to snowshoers… like us! We’ll strap on our snowshoes and follow the river for a few kilometres, admiring its beautiful, natural blue colour. The Biei River is in fact the river that feeds the Blue Pond 20km upstream— amazing that its colour is visible all the way into town! As we go, you'll have plenty of chances to play in the wonderful, soft snow. On very cold mornings, you may also spot some wonderful natural phenomena, such as diamond dust or rime ice clinging to the trees. If you wish, you can start the morning snowshoe earlier at 8am or 8:30am for a better chance of seeing these phenomena! MEETING POINT: 09:00 or 13:30, JR Biei Station DURATION: 2.5hrs SEASONALITY: Snowfall ~ Mar 10th
