Great tour with experienced guide Sho and Marina. It was a wonderful weather and really nice view of the Japanese Alps. The guides are knowledgeable and understanding because of our slower pace (we took a lot of pictures and we have a 60-year old with us). Highly recommended!

The fresh snow and the sunny weather of the day made our snow shoe experience a more fantastic one. The gears that we used are well maintained. Our guide Hisa san is very knowledgable about the place and even provided us with tea and biscuits. This activity with Satoyama

Our guide, Marino was so nice and friendly. She gave us lots of help and information. There many stories from natural signage on snow and trees that you can't find in other places. We highly recommend this tour of SATOYAMA EXPERIENCE. They prepared for the gears, that's so

Dear Ni, Thank you for your lovely comments! I am so happy the tour was be able to be one of your best memories in Japan. Weather is always easy to change on mountains, but it was perfect!! If you have a chance to come Hida, please visit us again. We can give you other special experience! I am waiting for you two. Thanks again. Marino from SATOYAMA EXPERIENCE.

So far in Japan we've visited bigger cities but our snowshoeing expedition with Hisa was a chance to see a little farming village where tourists (except for those like us, I guess) rarely go. Hisa was a wonderful guide and the route was not difficult even for those of us on

Thank you so much for having joined our snowshoeing tour and your lovely message! Tanekura is an amazing village where, yes not many tourist visit to. Especially this time of year. So you are really lucky to see the scenery, enjoyed the experience. Believe or not, the snow in Hida is rarely left now. Spring is definitely in the air. Hope we can see you again sometime in the future ... why not visiting Hida in the different season? All the best and take care of yourselves. Thank you.

Thank you so much for having joined our snow shoeing tour, and left this wonderful comments! So glad you and your kids enjoyed the experience. It's really beautiful mountain area there, I always think that it's one of loveliest areas in Japan. Hisa is an amazing guide indeed. He certainly made your experience better than you expected, I believe. Hope we see you and your family again in the future. Until then wishing you all the best. Thank you.
