2-Day Tateyama Snow Paradise

$188.00Price

*This Private tour is priced from $188 per person. Pricing variation is listed below.

 

Witness the gigantic man-made snow walls at "Yuki-no-Otani', which means "big valley of snow". At Murodo Plateau (alt 8038 ft) in Mt.Tateyama (alt 9892 ft), the height of the snow wall could get as high as 65feet (20m), and the snow walled corridor extends over a quarter mile long. In winter, snowfall on Mt.Tateyama is unbelievably intense and blizzards continue to blow every day. At Murodo, in addition to the falling snow, the snow blown away by the wind creates a place where the accumulated snow is extremely deep. In this tour, you can walk through the snow walled corridor, and also take a short walk to see sacred Mikurigaike Pond since ancient times.     

 

Difficulty Levels :   Easiest (Suitable for people of all ages who are in fair condition) 

* This tour does not require any special equipment for snow mountain climbing. However, we recommend that you bring gloves, warm hat, boots or waterproof shoes, and sunglasses. Rental Jackets and boots are available.
