1 Day

Jan, Feb, Dec




I invite you to discover one of the best powder areas in the world. Follow me on this splitboarding program in Hokkaido and have fun across the snow-covered mountains of Japan.

This trip takes place in Niseko, Moiwa and Rusutsu, some of the most famous ski resorts in the area. We’ll meet at 8 am and spend around 4 hours splitboarding in the chosen route for the day. This will be decided in advance according to the group’s level and wishes. We’ll mainly use ski lifts to ascend to our splitboarding area so we don’t waste time hiking up. 

As examples, these are some of the possible routes to take:

  • Asahi-dake, Kamui Ski Links, Furano Ski Resort, Pippu Ski Resort.

  • Niseko, Rusutsu, Sapporo Area Niseko Moiwa, Rusutsu Resort, Sapporo Kokusai, Sapporo Teine, Kiroro.

Although some splitboarding experience is required, this program is perfect for beginners. If you want to improve your knowledge, this is a great place to do it!

So if you want to be a part of this splitboarding adventure, all you have to do is send your request. Do not hesitate and come with me to Hokkaido! I will be happy to be your guide.


About the guide

I am a JMGA certified mountain and ski / snowboarding guide. I was born in Shiga prefecture, where I still live, and have been snowboarding since 1999. I’ve been a backcountry guide since 2007

My passion is travelling and backcountry snowboarding. My guiding style is to travel to snowboard, and during the winter season, I travel from Hokkaido to Western Japan (Gifu) chasing the snow with my clients.

I am not a pro snowboarder that decorates the front page of free ride magazines nor am I a super climber on high peaks abroad, but my speciality is to understand what clients seek and to guide accordingly.

My slogan is “To guide with maximum effort! Enjoy with clients! And by all means, safely!!”
Please join me to have fun in the backcountry fields all over Japan!
