Snowshoeing Under the Lake Mashu Stars – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Enjoy a snowshoeing trip from Lake Mashu Observatory #1 to the outer rim of the lake’s crater. This route is perfect for beginners, with gentle inclines and descents.  With only the sounds of nature to be heard, you’ll feel like you’ve traveled to another world. If you’re lucky, you might see local wildlife such as white-tailed eagles, northern ravens, and even herds of deer. Along the way, you’ll stop for hot chocolate, admiring the view of this famously beautiful lake in eastern Hokkaido.
