    This 2-day Oze National Park guided hiking tour will take you to some of the most beautiful natural spots in Japan!

    Oze National Park holds the largest highland marsh in the country and it is famous due to its unique flora and fauna. The lush vegetation makes the scenery spectacular, especially from spring to fall.

    We’ll go to Ozegahara marshland, the Ozenuma lake and Ayame-daira marsh. And you’ll see the great beauty of the wetland contrasting with the amazing Mount Shinbutsu (2228 m) and Mount Hiuchigatake (2,356m). Plus, we’ll spend the night at the comfortable Miharashi mountain hut, inside the park. So you’ll experience the park’s natural beauty from very close.

    I’ve been guiding in this area for a long time so I know all the best spots. I’ll make sure you don’t miss out on any of the park’s hidden gems. Please note that this tour is offered only until beginning of October when the roads and huts close.

    Please contact me with your requests and I’ll be happy to guide you on this amazing 2-day Oze National Park guided hiking tour. Dare come discover this beautiful corner of Japan with me!

    And if you’d prefer a shorter hike, please check out my 1-day Oze National Park hiking tour.

    About the Guide


    I am a JMGA mountain guide based in Minakami in Gumma prefecture in Japan, home to Mount Tanigawa in the Tanigawa Mountain Range. It is one of the top 100 famous mountains in Japan and is my favourite mountain full of potentials in rock climbing, mountaineering, backcountry skiing and trekking. I also run a lodging service there for the convenience of clients, which I started in response to the requests by my clients in 2011.

    My specialty ranges from climbing / mountaineering, trekking (hiking and snow shoeing), Sawanobori (climbing up through waterfalls), backcountry skiing / ski touring, pack rafting and canyoning.

    Having been a member of Exploration Club whilst at University in Kyoto, my first guiding certification was in river rafting, where my passion lay at the time, and my main guiding activities now are mostly in the mountains.
    With “explore deeper and have fun” as mottos, I put together outdoor adventure itineraries for each season of the year, so that more people can feel and enjoy the power and kindness of the nature.

    I would love to share the unique, beautiful and exploratory experience you can get in Minakami with you, let it be in the mountains or in the waters!

    I have the following certificates: JMGA Climbing Guide Stage Level 2, Oze Nature Guide, Oze Climbing Guide and WMA Wilderness First Responder.

    When I'm unavailable to guide, my trusted colleagues with JMGA certifications will be able to guide you!
