An experienced mountain specialist guide supporting the guest's drive all along
The buggy can run through an undulating road full of ponds as deep as 30cm without dropping speed. The guest being able to off-road through various terrains on such a buggy is the biggest feature of this activity. In order for guests whom are to drive a buggy for the first time to be able to enjoy the experience at ease, an experienced mountain guide will be giving a lecture on how to drive, what are the recommended routes, where are the animals likely to appear, etc. The guide will be on a separate buggy leading in front and guiding the guest on the course through the radio, so you would not have to worry about getting lost.
Speeding through the private mountain till everything gets muddy
This is an activity to speed through the 10km private course in the mountain 891m above sea level till everything gets real muddy. To become a child again and play in the mud in nature to your heart's desire, we have limited this activity on rainy days only for the optimal muddiness. There you may gaze out to Tomamu's scenic view from around the peak, and if you are lucky, you may as well meet some of the wild animals like Yezo sika deer, ezo red fox, and mountain hare, etc. This is an experience that makes you feel adventurous and can rarely be enjoy in city life.
