What should I know about Snowshoeing Japan?
Japan is an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean comprised of more than 6,850 islands in total, including Hokkaido to the north and Honshu, the main island. The northern and mountainous regions feature some of the best snow quality for winter sport enthusiasts, including dry powder and corn snow for skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. The wide geographic range means a large collection of flora and fauna, which can be found in large quantities on a dedicated snowshoeing tour on Honshu and Hokkaido. Transportation via the high-speed Shinkansen train allows inter-island travel and connects some of the elevated regions where snowshoeing provides breathtaking views. Its mountains receive a healthy snowfall each year, so diverse programs can be enjoyed before and after the peak season.
