    This hiking tour around the Hakuba area will take you across three of its most famous mountains and will also give you the chance to relax at Yari Onsen (hotsprings), a favorite among visitors and locals alike.

    From Tsubaike Natural Park, we’ll do a 3-day traverse that includes Mt. Shirouma (2932 m), Mt. Shaku (2812m) and Mt. Shirouma Yari (2903m). These three mountains are straddled between the Nagano and the Toyama Prefectures and are famous for their abundant vegetation.

    The views from the ridge will leave you in awe! This area is very popular among Japanese hikers. It is also a favorite during the winter months as Hakuba Daisekkei is one of the largest snow valleys in Japan and receives lots of snow from the surrounding mountains.

    After summiting Mt Shirouma, we can visit Yari Onsen or also Renge Onsen, two high-altitude hot springs that will help you relax after a long hiking day.

    A maximum of 4 people can join me on this hiking tour around Hakuba. A good fitness level is necessary, though you won’t need any technical skills.

    Sounds like a plan? Contact me to reserve the dates for you and your group. I can promise an unforgettable experience in one of Japan’s most beautiful natural areas. 

    You can also check out my Mt Karamatsu to Mt Goryu traverse. It’s another great way to immerse yourself in the stunning Hakuba area in the Japan Alps!

    About the Guide


    I'm a JMGA certified hiking guide as well as one of Nagano Prefecture's Official Mountain Guides for North Japan Alps.

    My love for mountains and skiing brought me to live in countries like New Zealand, Canada and Europe (including Chamonix) as a ski instructor and as a tour coordinator for over 10 years.
    In Chamonix I was inspired by the IFMGA mountain guides, who were my mentors and who had a lot of compassions, and I started to aspire to become a guide myself.
    Currently, I live in the village of Hakuba and guiding mainly in the mountains of North Japan Alps.

    My motto is to "have fun safely" and I value the communications I have with clients whilst guiding.

    If you want to feel glad you came at the end of the day, then join me to enjoy the Japanese mountains together!
