I want to enjoy snowshoeing as a group of four girlfriends. Please tell me hotels and inns where we can enjoy snowshoeing and delicious meals at night. Location does not matter, but the price should be under 15,000 yen per person per night.

We are a group of four women in our late 30s who have never done snowshoeing. Please tell me hotels and inns nearby the place where we can rent snowshoes and get some lessons for snowshoeing.

Cheap and delicious. There is also a swimming pool.

How about Sapporo International Ski Resort, since you don’t care the location. It is one of the largest ski resorts in Hokkaido, and also safe even for beginners. For accommodations, relax in Jozankei Onsen, an annex to Sapporo city. Jozankei View Hotel is a beautiful hotel and cost 10,000 to 12,000 yen per night. The hotel also has a large heated swimming pool.

My recommendation

My recommendation is Naeba Prince Hotel. Naeba Prince Hotel organizes a tour to try snowshoeing. The tour includes an equipment rental, lessons, insurance and so on, so it’s convenient to try. I think it is perfect for making your debut on snowshoeing with no hassle ♪

Buffet meals + hot springs, and also snowshoe walking plans

I recommended Norikura Kogen for the moment, but also Kyuka-mura holiday villages in regions with heavy snowfalls such as Urabandai have snowshoeing experience plans, and for both cases, you can walk with a guide on a snowshoeing course for beginners within your budget.
You can relax yourself after a hard day in hot springs, and enjoy buffet style meals with locally sourced dishes and chatting.
