Lake Mashu in Teshikaga is well worth a visit. Snowshoe through the lake’s winter landscape accompanied by a guide and enjoy incredible views near Lake Mashu Observatory 1. Don’t be surprised to catch sight of wild animals along the way, including Yezo shika deer, mountain hares, and Yezo red foxes. Also, admire the stunning contrast between rime ice and the “Mashu Blue” color of the lake water. Enjoy half a day surrounded by nature and wildlife in an area accessible only with the help of snowshoes.
