What To Expect

Snowshoe through the thick snow of the Orofure pass to meet their beloved "snow monsters," the juhyo ice trees of Japan. These are gigantic trees heavily coated with hoar frost, making them look like gentle creatures living in the snow (hence the nickname). They were created purely with ingredients provided by nature: strong winds, low temperatures, snow, and conifer trees. Not only is this a winter hiking experience that you shouldn't miss, but also an opportunity to appreciate the natural world around us.

    The place that we supposed to go was closed due to bad weather. So, we can't really review. nevertheless, the guide was good and fun to be around. We enjoy the snowshoe walking and the beautiful scenery. we are not disappointed that we are not able to see the monster trees.
  • David Kah Jin 24 Jan 2019
    Our guide Konno Yumiko was very nice, helpful and knowledgeable. This was our most memorable experience of winter in Japan where the snowscape was pristine and tranquil. We will definitely bring our adult kids next!

    Wonderful experience, amazing scenery. Walked on closed road to snow covered trees. Yumi, our guide, is very cheerful and understood her English quite easily..
  • CHEE KIONG 23 Dec 2018
    Wonderful...Magnificent...Great Experience First time walking on the snow with the experience guide Tosai san and lovely translator Yoko san both of them are so friendly. Walking to the jungle with at least 2m thick of snow is not easy but worth for the experience and the view...feel relaxed when stopping and looking at the nature view cover with soft white snow. Miss the snow monster tree as it's not the heavy snow timing but great for photo shooting...nice view

    A lot of fun! Although I couldn't get to the top of the mountain because of the bad weather, I couldn't see the snow hoarfrost, but the tour guide Miss Tomo also tried to take us on the road. The snow that I saw along the way really opened our eyes to those who lived in the south. ! Later, because of the safety relationship, everyone decided to give up. Miss Tomo took us to a ski resort to try out snowshoes, and walked around the slopes with big feet. During the period, everyone had a good time. Miss Tomo was humorous and said in English. Very good, and explained some animal and plant knowledge to us along the way. After the event, we asked us to drink hot coffee and send a small gift. It was a very pleasant journey! Klook's customer service is also in place. Before the departure, I was not sure whether the meeting place was in the hotel lobby or the gate. I was asked, and I was told that I was in the lobby. I was very satisfied with the many trips!
