Trek through Shirakami Sanchi's beech tree forests and finish off with a relaxing onsen soak.

Shirakami Sanchi Secret Forest Tour and Onsen Soak!

Tomeyama is a virgin beech tree forest located within Shirakami Sanchi. Only accessible with a guide, it provides a rare glimpse into an 8,000-year-old natural wonder.

An easy course, visitors can enjoy Tomeyama Forest’s clean air and lush vegetation while learning more about the ecosystem and history of Shirakami Sanchi. Take a picture with the 350-year-old “Grandfather Tree,” feel the soft soil beneath your feet, and listen for birds chirping in the distance. In the fall, see the forest turn a golden yellow.

After the trek, relax your muscles in one of the many baths at Hatahata Kan’s onsen. With spectacular views of the Sea of Japan it’s a perfect place to wrap up the tour. Learn more about this experience and book through the Voyagin link below.
