I nominated myself to organise this tour so that participants will be able to see and experience. The tour will be visiting two koshogatsu (new year ritual) in two villages in Tsunan and Ketto in Akiyamago which themselves are almost like perfomance and art in this snow country. Snow falling down from the sky which transforms the landscape completely different is public art created by nature. The tour will also help my childhood dream come true - to make a kamakura (igloo) with local people. The winter delicacies are something you must try - so I very much looking forward to enjoying winter with you.

Making kamakura (igloo)

It is strangely warm inside kamakura and all the sound are absorbed. Let's make an original base in unexplored area together.

Mikurabashi

"Mikurabashi" a hunging bridge in between trees is where the film "yureru" was shot. There is only a few people visit once snow falls but you will be astonished by the landscape in winter.
