Surround yourself in snowy wilderness
Enjoy a relaxed, beginner-friendly snowshoe tour through the Kusatsu area's picturesque mountains and valleys. The area is covered in deep snow in winter, making snowshoes the only way to access much of the Kusatsu wilderness.
During the trek, there is a chance to see wildlife such as foxes and rabbits. After an active day in the cold, rejuvenate in Kusatsu's many natural onsen baths.
