This is definitely a must-do in Hokkaido. The mountain was peaceful and safe. I never felt so calm. Our guide, Sumi, was thoughtful, fun, outdoorsy and intelligent. She speaks very good English since she lived in US for some time. We are her last Snowshoe Hike for the season.


What a great, fun day! Sumi was just excellent. She picked us up from the hotel, had all the gear that we need and took us on a stunning trail. She even had tea and little treats for a small pick me up half way through her tour. We ended the day at a beautiful onsen, surrounded by snow and had delicious curry. Absolutely fabulous


Excellent day spent with Sumi hiking through untouched snow, then bathing in the open air onsen surrounded by snow. An unforgettable experience, would highly recommend


Sumi's tour was the highlight of our time in Hokkaido area - She picked us up from our hotel, took us on an amazing snowshoe adventure, and even included a sled for our daughter to sled the hills and brought warm tea and snacks for our break. The ONSEN was magical and a perfect way to end the afternoon. Sumi was warm, engaged and such a pleasure to spend time with. We learned so much and really had an exciting day, ending the day with deep relaxation. Thank you Sumi!


My 20 year old son and I have just returned from our fun day out with Sumi. She picked us at the hotel and dropped us off at the end. She is a “local” speaks great English and has almost all the answers ! We parked up in the road rest area got kitted up, and hiked off into the woods. The snow was deep and fun to mess around in. Little sign of other people which was nice. After a hot tea and sweets we hiked back. Sadly we saw no animal life except rabbit tracks. I suggest that you do this trip BEFORE going skiing/ snowboarding as a great intro to the hills/trees/snow etc. DO NOT MISS the Onsen. A truly classic wonderful relaxing and strangely “normal” experience. Thanks Sumi


We wanted to explore the wilds of Hokkaido and this tour exceeded our expectations. Sumi picked us up from our hotel and drove us a short hour outside of town for a snowshoe/sledding adventure. We did not see another person the entire snowshoe adventure and felt like we were exploring an uncharted snow wonderland. We were even lucky enough to see "little Mt Fuji", which was a treat. Sumi was full of interesting stories, her equipment was top notch, and she even had hot tea and treats for us on our rest in the snow. After we had our fill of exploring and sledding, she took us to a beautiful lunch and ONSEN experience to round out the day. As we had never been to an Onsen, she educated us on the process and traditions and helped us get our tickets, etc. I cannot recommend this tour enough.


This was so much fun! The idea of trying to do something yourself is logistically complicated, but it is easy to just be picked up, driven and brought out to the mountain in the snow. We had a lot if fun and Sumi san was very nice. The onsen was also beautiful! We were in the hot water while it snowed. Definitely worth the time and money.


We were in Sapporo for the winter festival and were going to go skiing. Given we had never snowshoes we decided to try this activity. We are so glad we did it was excellent. Sumi picked us up, we went to a beautiful hill/park to snowshoe. It had snowed a lot the day before so we had deep fun snow for snowshoeing. Sumi brought hot tea and snacks. We then went for lunch and to the onsen. She dropped us off at our Airbnb. Sumi was so nice, a great guide. Highly recommend this activity.


I am frankly surprised that there aren't more reviews for this excellent hiking tour led by Ms. Sumi of Hokkaido Private Adventure. It's a really great way for novices to experience the winter landscapes of Sapporo in a relaxed but still challenging way, especially if you and your family are still working up the courage to go skiing or snowboarding. It's best to be prepared with water and wind proof gear, but Ms. Sumi can help with anything you might by lacking, That ensures that you're less worried about surviving and can focus more on the great views of snow-covered birches and rolling terrain. Enjoy sinking into the unpacked snow and learning how to get your legs under you. Surprisingly challenging and engaging. Ms. Sumi is a great guide and you can tell her how much adventure you're up for. She's extremely comfortable in English, and she brings with her the experience of growing up in Hokkaido. She brings a lot of the fun in the hiking tour. There is supposed to be an onsen at the other end of all the shivering in the forest, but we couldn't work our courage up for that. I am sure it would be a perfect counterpoint to walking in the snow.

This is great if you want to try something different. At an affordable price, you can play in the snow without having to worry about purchasing extra gear. Sumi was our guide, and she was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, polite, and complete fun to be around. We felt like VIPs as she picked us up from our hotel lobby, drove us from downtown Sapporo to Jozankei and back after the adventure was over. She also helped us with the snowshoes and made us hot drinks and snacks while we explored the park. Hillside sledding was an extra delight, and we were also lucky enough to see deer roaming through the trees at one point. Even if you aren't very fit or into outdoor adventures, this trip is worth it for the onsen experience alone.
