XMAS DAY SNOWSHOE
The Christmas Day Snowshoe is a great activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family from ages 3 and up. On this non strenuous but very fun trip into the Japanese winter wonderland you can relax sipping hot mulled wine over a brandy Christmas cake while the children search for presents dropped by Santa on his whirlwind tour of the Japan Alps.
HALF DAY: 8:50 sign-in ~ 11:45 finish
Snowshoe rental, local guide, insurance(must reside in Japan), tax, mulled wine and brandy Christmas cake for the adults, hot cocoa and cookies for the children and of course as many gifts and goodies as the little ones can search out on the Treasure Hunt.
What To Bring:
Winter clothing for all conditions, warm hat or knit cap, sunglasses or goggles, gloves, winter boots or snowboard boots.
This tour is provided for children. During this tour, you don’t walk much as regular snowshoe tour. You spend more time for having a tea and treasure hunting for children.
