JMGA 

I am a JMGA mountain guide based in the seaside town of Miura in Kanagawa prefecture, offering a mix of outdoors guiding activities in both the mountains and the sea. What I value the most in guiding is to of course guide my clients safely but also for my clients to spend a quality time in the rich nature. Exposing yourself in the rich nature by taking part in outdoor activities, and by removing everything in between you and the nature, I believe that you’ll be able to experience the extraordinary. It could be the overwhelming feel from witnessing the change in landscapes through seasons, or that you learnt to speak to your own body and heart, or that you deepened the understanding of the local area, and of course it could be that precious moment where you can experience this together with other people!

I am also certified in Japan Avalanche Network (JAN) at Level 2.
In the summer, I guide in the mountains, mainly in the North Japan Alps, and sea kayak, and in the winter I take clients backcountry skiing.
Whatever the discipline, my focus is always for my clients to be able to “feel” and to be one with the nature. The integral part of the fun is to interact with the locals, to meet the local culture, and to breathe in the air there as a total package!
So, in the summer I like to take clients deep into the mountains accessed by using both the sea kayak and your climbing / hiking skills, as well as staying in tents at night. I think it is a pity if you only spend time in the mountains or only in the sea!
And in the winter, I’d like to show my clients that backcountry skiing is not all about chasing powder but it is about getting joy from the mountains in totality.

I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing a quality time in the land of varying seasonal beauties!

Tadashi Terada is an excellent guide. I asked him to take me up Mount Fuji by the Subashiri Trail in early May 2024, when there was still 1000 meters of snow and ice on the mountain and the trail ropes were buried. Tadashi was patient, professional, careful, loyal, funny, and excellent at route-finding (we descended through the snowfield and bush zone after dark because of my slow pace). The travel, food and lodging arrangements which Tadashi made after picking me up in Tokyo were also first rate. I very highly recommend him as a guide and person.

From the outset of our journey to the summit of Mt. Fuji, Tadashi proved to be an exceptional guide. His meticulous attention to detail was evident as he provided thorough instructions and assisted us with arranging all the necessary rental equipment for the climb. This preparation made us feel confident and ready to tackle the challenge ahead. Tadashi's commitment to safety and his considerate nature shone through as he allowed us to set our pace, especially when the altitude made breathing difficult. His ability to adapt to our needs without compromising safety was truly commendable. Moreover, Tadashi's kindness extended beyond the mountain; he offered us convenient transportation to and from Mt. Fuji, adding a layer of comfort and ease to our adventure. Throughout the climb, he was not just our guide but also an excellent photographer. He captured countless memorable moments, including a very special one—my proposal to my girlfriend (now my fiancée). Tadashi managed to capture the proposal in stunning detail, which made our engagement even more memorable. Choosing Tadashi as our guide was undoubtedly the best decision we made for our climb. His professionalism, expertise, and genuine care are what make him stand out. If you're seeking a guide who will not only ensure your safety but also enhance your experience with heartfelt dedication, Tadashi Terada is the one you want by your side on Mt. Fuji.
