More Info

Japan is one of the world’s top destinations for splitboarding, which combines backcountry skiing with snowboarding. Hokkaido may be one of the most popular spots to head out on the board, but it is far from the only one.

Just an hour by train outside of Tokyo, Mount Fuji is a fan-favourite spot to head out on your splitboard. Spend a day climbing up to the top on the skins of the separated skis before getting an early start the next day to see the sunrise and careen down the mountain on your board.

Nearby to Hokkaido, the island of Rishiri is offers incredible ocean views and plenty of excellent splitboarding too. Niseko and Sapporo are also nearby to the splitboarding hotspot and offer other excellent options as well.




Good to Know


What’s the weather like?

During the winter, Japan is quite cold and gets plenty of snow. Temperatures and snowfall do vary, but from Mount Fuji to Hokkaido, it is usually below freezing during the winter. Due to its proximity to the Sea of Japan, most of the mountainous areas also receive plenty of snowfall, averaging 10 to 16 meters per season!

How do I get there:

Any trip to Japan begins with a flight into either the Haneda International Airport (HND) or Narita International Airport (NRT). From here, you can take a regional flight or the famous bullet train on to your final destination.
