More Info

Japan is a series of islands in the Pacific Ocean, and its incredible mountains aren’t just reserved to the Nagano Region of Honshu. The north island of Hoakkaido has some of the best snow in the world, while the rugged peaks of the Japan Alps – which is a series of mountain ranges running down the main island of Honshu – have made a name for themselves as accessible and world-class adventures.

Tokyo is located close to Mt. Fuji, as well as other popular destinations in the Chubu Region. The cultural intrigue of Japan is closely associated with its landscape, so ski mountaineering is one of the most enriching ways to engage with the country. The people are also known for their hospitality and accommodating top notch trips to their most infamous mountains.



Good to Know



The temperature drops deep into cold during the winter, with excellent snowfall throughout the season. Hokkaido receives impressive dumps that make it one of the most intriguing ski destinations in the world. The below-freezing temperatures help keep the snow quality consistently high.

How to Get There

Tokyo is centrally located on Honshu, making it a perfect place to fly into. For trips to the north, an international airport serves Sapporo, just north of Niseko. The high-speed train and developed roadways make domestic travel a breeze.
