Senjogahara marshes in February 2019/1/8 01:33
Hello everyone,

One place I'd like to add to my plan is the visit of Senjogahara marshes, and hike in the snow with snow shoes. In this travel page https://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3811.html#section_get_there it's written that you have to take the bus from Nikko and stop at the Sanbonmatsu parking, where you can rent the snow shoes. However, later in 'Access' it's written that at that stop 'Sanbonmatsu bus stop offers a small observation deck with views over the marshland, but no access to the hiking trails'.

at which bus stop would you advise to rent snow shoes and start the hiking trail I see in the report pictures?

Thanks!

As it seems, the snow shows are rented out at a shop by Sanbonmatsu parking lot (closed onWednesdays and when they have big groups) but they may be more intended for a snow shoe course by them, not necessarily for the trail.

On the same site they mention (as of Jam. 15) climbing shoes might be more suitable for the trail.
