I'm a ski and mountain guide from the Japanese Mountain Guide Association (JMGA). I guide backcountry skiing, mountaineering, hiking and canyon climbing (Sawanobori) mainly on Honshu, the main island of Japan.
When I was younger, I spent a couple of years in Canada and in Salt Lake City skiing and working as a rafting guide, as well as spent 2 summer seasons in Switzerland as a hiking guide.

I started backcountry ski guiding when I based myself in Minakami and started one of the first backcountry ski guide companies in the area in 2002. I'm travelling every year to Europe and North America for ski trip with my clients.

Please contact me if you wish to come to Japan and would like to enjoy our beautiful environment while doing an exciting outdoor activity.

Great trip! Kenichi was an amazing guide — both in the backcountry and as a local guide suggesting restaurants, onsens, etc. Highly recommend!

Kenichi is an incredible guide. Despite less than ideal conditions he found us fresh snow and great runs. He also helped with logistical glitches that cropped up and made sure we ate great food as well. He’s a great guy and we look forward to planning more adventures! We are extremely grateful for the time we had with him.

Keni was an unbelievable guide, not only on the mountain but also in town during the night. An additional comment was he supported us post tour as he was still in the area. Much appreciated everything he did.

I just wanted to say that Kenichi-san was a fantastic guide and a really good man. We loved our time with him and got to ski much more powder snow than if we had been by ourselves. I highly recommend him as a guide.
