Many of us don’t have the privilege of seeing lots of snow on regular basis. In many parts of many countries thick snow is something of rarity – even when there is some snow it tends to be a thin covering that you can’t really enjoy in the same way. And when it’s in our home town in this way then the snow becomes not something that we enjoy but something of a pest – it slows us down so that we can’t work, it causes accidents, it means that the shops and the schools are closed (to be fair the latter is a good thing for school children) and generally it is not an ‘enjoyable’ occasion.
This is a shame as a thick layer of snow can be highly fun to experience – and this is the case when we go on holiday where we can enjoy Japan snow tours away from it all and in a setting where the snow doesn’t cause us any problems. It allows us to make snow balls and fight with one another, to build snow men, to leap into the snow and not get hurt, to laugh as we struggle to go up hill and generally it creates a great time. At the same time though getting to see the thick snow means that we get to see the beautiful layer of crystal white it creates – and it’s an amazing experience to be surrounded by glimmering ice and snow which catches the light and shines brightly as a result. When you meet other tourists walking through this winter wonderland, they will without exception be happy to see you and will exchange pleasantries – it’s surprising what being surrounded by beautiful snow does to people.
Of course again this is much more beautiful in Japan snow tours where you are also likely to be in the mountains where you can see the huge cliffs and valleys and the other snow capped mountains around you. There are few more humbling and incredible sites than feeling dwarfed by a range of spectacular mountains. The kinds of wildlife that you will experience too will be impressive and you are likely to encounter things that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.
And of course the transport problem isn’t an issue when you are on snow tours Japan. Here things are very different and you will be provided with a whole new mode of transport – whether it’s snowmobiles or skis and this provides an incredibly fun, unique, smooth and fast ride. If you want to do something more high adrenaline and exciting then of course the best option is snow boarding or skiing, or if you are in the mood to be be shown around at a more mellow pace then you can go for tours on foot or on snowmobile and can learn about the amazing surroundings you are walking through. Put it all together and you will be amazed at the beauty, smiling at other tourists, watching wildlife and the hills and valleys, cruising along either on a board or in a mobile and learning about your scenery.
