Not specified

2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug


Join me for an amazing traverse in Hokkaido, hiking from Mt Rausu (Rausudake) to Mt Io (Shiretoko Iozan).

During this 2 or 3-day trip, we’ll be hiking on the ridge line of the Shiretoko Peninsula.

We will start hiking from a low altitude forest and go forward to a volcanic ridge line. In addition to a wonderful trekking experience, you can enjoy a guided tour about alpine plants and wild animals.

Besides, we’ll spend the nights in a tent, enjoying the beautiful environment.

In fact, this region is a Natural World Heritage Site, famous for its wide variety of natural life.

This program is ideal for experienced hikers. I recommend to take a 3-day itinerary so you can have enough time to walk. Please inform me of your past trekking / hiking experiences when contacting me.

If you want to join me for this adventure, please contact me. I will be happy to be your guide in this amazing place!

Jun is an outstanding guide, a true expert in his field. He was attentive to our needs and desires and very ably provided us with a fantastic experience skiing in the Asahikawa area backcountry. I will book other trips with him and highly recommend him to others!

Wow what a Tour! Jun guided us perfectly, we made it to the top of yotei. An Incredible experience!



We had an excellent time hiking up to the summit of Mt Kurodake. Jun gave us a good intro to the flora and fauna on the way up and regaled us with stories all the way up. He set a pace suitable for us and ensured our safety throughout. Jun comes highly recommended!
