Bounty of Spring: Enjoy Coffee Using Birch Sap

When the plants that survived the cold winter start showing their sprouts, the Birch trees begin to use their trunks to absorb all the water from the melted snow that was stored in the soil. We take just a little of this abundant sap. The snow melts much later in the extreme cold of Tomamu, so it is one of the few places in Hokkaido where you can still collect sap during the Golden Week period.
Enjoy the slightly sweet Birch Coffee. For children, we offer hot Calpis (uncarbonated soft drink made with milk).

In the early morning, after setting the tools for collecting tree sap, each group can enjoy breakfast on their own, and then everyone will gather together again to collect the tree sap.

Bounty of Spring: Picking and Eating Mountain Vegetables

When it starts to get warm, the plants and animals of the mountains all start to wake.
During this period, in the mountains of Tomamu, will mountain greens like kogomi (fern sprouts) and fuki (giant butterbur) start growing in small communities.

Take a walk to pick these bounties of the spring, aiming for secret spots only known to the staff.
