Overview

Explore the top of the mountain where many wild animals live.
In the forest, looking for a little while you can find many footprints of rabbits, squirrels, foxes, raccoon dogs, weasels, and deers on pure white snow.
If you are lucky, you may see the real animals. If you sharpen your senses, you can feel the signs of wild animals.
And the summit overlooking the port town of Otaru and Japan Sea is breathtaking.
If the weather is fine, you can see the tip of Shakotan Peninsula far away.

This place is also a power spot. Tengu is said to have various benefits.
Tengu has a long red nose. When you stroke the nose, It brings you good luck for health, prosperous business and road safety.
Dont worry if you ve never walked on the snow. Please rest assured to walk slowly.
The Guide was born and grew up at the foot of Mt. Tengu until I was 18 years old.
When I was a kid, I went skiing every day in winter. In summer, I often climbed to catch insects such as stag beetles, butterflies and grasshoppers.
I really want to tell you the wonderfulness of Mt. Tengu, that has not just a view.
By the way, I have been training self-defense and Zazen for 35 years. If you so wish, you can also experience self-defense and zazen. Please feel free to contact us in advance.
