Adventure Hokkaido Guides Tobaji, Richard & Ayaka had four day snowshoeing adventure in Asahidake, Biei and Toma last week. They were accompanied by a bunch of local guides, travel companies and the Hokkaido Transport Bureau. Snow hiking in the forests around Asahidake Onsen and Shirogane Onsen was a joy as always, and having the Toma Limestone Cave all to ourselves was a remarkable adventure!
The Toma Limestone Cave is usually closed for winter. However, we were able to walk into the cave with a special permission thanks to Toma Town Council. We can't wait to share this adventure with more of you soon. It is a great mixture of snowshoeing, cultural encounters with sake tasting to wrap up the trip.
