SANSAI Picking and Hiking

At first glance it looks like a weed, but it’s very delicious to eat. The mountain s surrounding Lake Nojiri overflow with edible wild plants “sansai”. We will find almost fifty kinds of common edible plants. Once you start picking you will not be able to stop! Why not join our hiking tour and pick sansai? Our guide drives all guests to attractive mountains in spring.

Now, let’s go SANSAI hiking!

Nature is a treasure trove of SANSAI. Find various kinds of edible wild plants in the mountain.

Find superior KOGOMI (ostrich fern)!

It is best to boil KOGOMI quickly and make a dressed dish.
Seeing the curvaceous beauty of nature make us feel excited.

Active scenes!

Active scenes!

With wearing not trekking shoes but gum long boots, we cross the stream because SANSAI are often found near stream or wet land.

Bamboo shoots in the Hokushin region of Nagano prefecture!

Bamboo shoots that are only as thick as the thumb, which can be harvested in the late spring, are called “nemagaritake”.
Takenoko soup made from “nemagaritake” and mackerel cans is excellent.
