Things to Do


The site logo

Sit back and relax at the base of a World Heritage Site.


Savour the tranquility of Shirakami’s nature by indulging in the activity of ‘chairing’. This unique experience allows you to unwind and escape the hustle and bustle of daily life while sitting on a chair outdoors by the riverside. Sip on a cup of coffee brewed with the clear waters of Shirakami beside a bonfire while grilling marshmallows in summer or autumn.

Enhance your moments of relaxation with optional services and enjoy a more personalized ‘chairing’ experience. Bonfire beginners can even opt for a bonfire instructor!
