Enjoy Winter in Goshogawara! Goshogawara Snow Cycling

Try fat-biking and snowshoeing! Frolic through Aomori's winter on an easy and active private tour.

This is a snow cycling tour through the Iizume area within Goshogawara's city limits. The route is very flat and has little vehicle traffic, so it’s great for beginners. Simply riding a bicycle on snow is exciting enough, but the stunning winter scenery creates a unique and refreshing experience quite different from cycling in summer. Once you reach the tour's final location, we recommend returning to Goshogawara City on the Tsugaru Railway Stove Train, a famous winter attraction in Tsugaru. Enjoy this private tour with your family, friends, or a special someone.
※This tour includes all fat bike and snowshoe rental equipment. You need only prepare proper winter clothing and your minimum daily necessities to join.
※Snowshoeing is optional.

  • The cycling trip starts from Tsugaru Kanayama Pottery! This earthenware workshop is open from 9 a.m., so you can have a look around and buy some souvenirs before the tour starts.

  • Mt. Iwaki is visible behind orchards of leafless apple trees. Ride along and view the scenery rich with Tsugaru's winter ambience!

  • Winter is a perfect time for animal tracking. It's fascinating to examine the animal prints left in the snow and imagine the lifestyles and behaviors of these creatures.

  • See a land of snowy white underneath the clear blue sky. Pedaling gets easier when you feel the excitement rush through you.

  • Choenji Temple in the Iizume area is a place of spiritual power which many visitors from far and wide come to see. It is home to Shiawase Kannon, the Buddha of Happiness.

  • You can step off your bicycle and into some snowshoes! Appreciate the snowy Tsugaru winter scenery at a slower pace on this mini snowshoe hiking experience.

  • After the snowshoe trek, have a break and enjoy some hot drinks on makeshift cafe tables carved out of the snow.

  • The final destination is the retro-looking Tsugaru-Iizume Station. We recommend riding the Stove Train (Tsugaru Railway) back into the city!
