Winter camping in Akita Shirakami

Enjoy winter camping at the Mori-no-Eki Camping Ground located at the foot of the Shirakami Mountains in rural Fujisato Town.

This campsite is conveniently located close to Mori-no-Eki roadside station (after which it is named), the idyllic Yunosawa Hot Spring Village, and the Shirakami-Sanchi World Heritage Conservation Center (Fujisato). Campers here can even enjoy sightseeing on foot – the charming Choshi Falls is just a 5-minute walk away! Adding to the fun, a range of winter activities await nearby, including snowshoeing, traditional Akita-style nabekko picnics, and free ski and snowboard rentals at the local Fujisato Ski Resort!

Not a huge fan of winter camping?

Not to worry, this campsite is the perfect destination for those seeking to experience the full spectrum of Akita Shirakami’s four seasons! During spring, enjoy breathtaking views of the cherry blossoms of Sakurazutsumi Park and Fujikoto River opposite the roadside station. Embrace forest bathing, river trekking, and hiking amidst the lush greenery of summer, and in autumn, witness the magnificent transformation of the beech trees into a vibrant tapestry of fall foliage.
