Snow Country Drifting Snow Tour

This unique program is a way for visitors to experience the fierce drifting snow of the frozen Tsugaru region of Aomori prefecture. Drifting snow, fallen snow wisping in the strong winds, is a well-known feature of Tsugaru region. The drifting snow can be of such an intensity that once it begins, it becomes difficult to see one’s own path. This rare tour has turned the troublesome drifting snow into a fascinating local experience.


The Snow in Tsugaru Strikes from Below

Visitors can become familiar with Tsugaru culture by going on the tour while wearing a traditional winter clothe called “Kakumaki” or riding the wide snow field of Tsugaru plains on a horse sleigh. If requested in advance, visitors can also fly a Tsugaru tako (kite). This tour has gained popularity domestically and internationally.
