Beware of the strongest wild animals, bears

Sixty-seven percent of Japan’s land area is forested.
As a result, there are many wild animals.
The most dangerous wild animal is probably the bear.
According to a survey by the Ministry of the Environment, brown bears inhabit about 55% of Hokkaido, and black bears inhabit about 45% of Honshu.

In 2023, it is said that there are very few nuts for bears to feed on, and many bears have been sighted.
In search of food, bears are coming to areas where humans live.
Especially in the Hokkaido, Tohoku, and Hokuriku regions, there have been many reports of bear attacks.
Some people have been seriously injured or killed by bears.
Bears appear not only on well-maintained hiking trails, but also in private homes.

Bears are not only large but also physically strong animals.
It is said that bears can run at speeds of up to 50 kilometers per hour, making it impossible for humans to run away from them.
In addition to its sharp claws and fangs, the bear has the power to blow off a human’s jaw with a single blow.
Bears have a habit of targeting the face first, so in addition to contusions to the face, some people suffer horrific injuries that are hard to describe.
Doctors who have treated them say that the conditions are often horrific.

Hiking and climbing can feel great, but without adequate information it can be dangerous.
Furthermore, be careful when traveling in rural areas.
Be sure to get local information before you go.

Why are we establishing this concierge service?

We advise our customers on a variety of matters.
These are complex questions that a regular travel agency cannot answer.

Compared to the past, it has become much easier for customers to book hotels and flight tickets online by themselves.
Additionally, there is a community of travelers exchanging information.
Unfortunately, this has led many travel agencies to become mere booking agents.
This wouldn’t suffice for travelers who have many questions.

The role of a travel agency is to professionally address customers’ desires.
Our concierge service is what a travel agency should be.

Our task is to ensure our customers have a safe and enjoyable journey.
Each customer has their own travel wishes. We help them realize those wishes.
