Plan description

[Maple hunting in Japan's snowy country] Let's collect and taste maple syrup in the snowy Japanese forest. In this program, you will walk through the snowy forest with snowshoes to collect the sap that is the source of maple syrup. A tree called "Itaya maple" protects itself by producing a lot of sap so that it will not freeze when the temperature is low in winter. Have the sap divided a little and make maple syrup. Please actually check what kind of tree you can get maple syrup from and whether the taste of the sap as it is is sweet. It looks like there are only snow and trees in the forest, but if you look carefully, you can actually feel the activities of various creatures and plants. A dedicated guide will guide you, so anyone can enjoy the snowy mountains in winter with peace of mind. * If you do not have snow boots, you can rent them for free. Please let us know your foot size in the remarks column of the application. [Enjoy maple syrup and pancakes on the snow] When the sap is collected and returned, this time it is a day camp while bonfire on the snow. We boil down the sap we collected to make original maple syrup, and bake pancakes using pesticide-free local Uonuma Koshihikari rice flour. Sprinkle on freshly baked pancakes and homemade maple syrup for a luxurious taste. Experience a new way to enjoy the winter forest while hitting a bonfire at a day camp.
