Snowshoe & Kanjiki

What are snowshoes?

Snowshoes were created by people living in the snow country in order to be able to walk on the snow. Snowshoes can increase the contact area with the snow and disperse the pressure under the feet, making it easy to walk on soft snow without falling into deep snow.

What’s so special about traditional Japanese snowshoes?

  • Japanese traditional snowshoes (かんじき)

    Mainly made of wood and hemp rope, it is light weight, easy to carry, and cheap, but has relatively low buoyancy on snow.

  • Modern snowshoes

    Mainly made of aluminum alloy, they are larger and heavier than traditional Japanese snowshoes, but they have better buoyancy on the snow, so they are often used in modern mountaineering during the snow season.
