  • Enjoy the breathtaking views of mountains, valleys and rivers.

  • Spend four incredible days hiking through a wonderful national park.

 

The Daisetsuzan National Park is Japan’s largest national park, full of large volcanoes and breathtaking views. Follow me on an incredible 4-day hiking tour, where I’ll show you the best spots in the area.

Located in central Hokkaido, this beautiful national park offers dazzling views of the mountains, valleys, waterfalls, and hot springs, plus the chance to observe the wide variety of wild animals and plants, including foxes and brown bears. It is popular among climbers, hikers and, especially, autumn lovers since its trees explode in a variety of reds, oranges, and browns during the fall months, the first to do so in the whole country. And, also, the first place where snow falls in the winter. It is also home to Hokkaido’s highest mountains, including Asahi-Dake.

Our Daisetsuzan National Park hiking adventure will take place along a long ridge. It will end at the Hotspring Lodge, where we’ll be able to relax at an onsen (volcanic hot springs) after four days of walking.

Prepare yourself for the best Daisetsuzan National Park tour and send your request! You’ll fall in love with this magical place.

About the Guide

 
 

I am an experienced IFMGA mountain guide, born and raised in Hokkaido, Japan. I started skiing when I was 3 and started climbing when I was 6. My high school years were spent in ski competitions and I joined mountaineering club at University, where I developed my ski mountaineering skills. I have been a ski instructor for Miura Dolphins founded by Yuichiro Miura (first ski descent of the Everest “The Man Who Skied Down Everest” and the oldest Everest summiting record holder at 80 years old) and also supported Yuichiro's Aconcagua ascent and ski descent in 1984 as a part of his 7 summits ski descent challenge.

I was inspired by the works of mountain guides in Chamonix when I visited there in 1983, and decided to start guiding as a mountain guide in Japan in 1989 to share my passion and experiences in outdoors sports with other people, as well as to offer instruction to people enjoying the mountains to be better climbers / skiers. I have also contributed to the proper training of JMGA (Japan Mountain Guides Association) guides and the affiliation of it to IFMGA. I am responsible for the pioneering of the climbing and backcountry skiing scenes in Japan.

My main guiding arena is alpinism, whether it be mountaineering or ski mountaineering, mainly in Hokkaido. I usually take a small group of people (2-5) for Sawanobori (canyoning up waterfalls), alpine climbing, ice climbing, and ski touring in the more remote areas of Japan.

I enjoy finding the best experience for each client accordingly to their physical abilities, preferences, and weather/conditions. I guide because I like watching and feeling that people are enjoying and having fun, and see how this buzz infects other people through skiing and climbing. I find this invaluable as a mountain guide.

There is more to Hokkaido than skiing lift accessible powder in January and February. Please reach out to me to find your own customised way to enjoy Hokkaido’s mountains, natures and culture!

Yuki Nagaya replaced Takao and did a perfect job. Daisetsuzan is very nice, scenery is tremendous and the trail is challenging. Onsen was available in all mountain huts. Apart from bring a great guide; Yuki prepares delicious food.
