Come enjoy the amazing Japanese powder while you admire the incredible sakura -cherry blossom season- with this 8-day ski touring trip in Japan.
Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossom season and it’s the best time of the year to visit Japan. It’s considered the national flower of the country and its pink, violet and many other colours invade the landscape for a few weeks.
You must have seen pictures of the perfectly shaped Mount Fuji with snow on top and thousands of colorful trees painting the lower countryside.
I’ve put together a tour that will combine different great features: I’ll take you skiing up to the Mount Shirouma area, to enjoy the amazing powder in this backcountry terrain in Nagano, you’ll enjoy some relaxing time in the Renge-Onsen hot springs and the end of the trip will be coronated with an ascent to the famous Mount Fuji!
You’ll get a glimpse of the best outdoor activities to do in Japan, while you admire during the whole trip the amazing scenery decorated with the colours of the cherry blossom.
Also on the 6th day we can stop to visit the Nagano-Zenkouji Temple. And I can take you to visit Tokyo on the last day, if you wish.
So don’t hesitate and send me a request to make this 8-day Sakura ski touring trip in Japan your next big adventure.
I’m already fully booked for the 2018 winter season. Book in advance for 2019!
I am an IFMGA mountain guide, also certified by the JMGA, born in Slovenia. Slovenia is known as one of the major sporting countries in the world - I used to compete at the Olympics representing Slovenia in Cross-country Skiing. After I left Slovenia, I travelled all over the world and ended up in Japan, where I have now lived for more than 20 years, mainly because I love the beautiful Japanese mountains too much, and I feel privileged to be able to enjoy these mountains through the entire four seasons.
I am based at the foot of the Japan Alps, in Nagano Prefecture. In the winter, we go climbing or skiing around Mt. Fuji or Yatsugatake and in the summer, we can enjoy shower-climbing or canoeing. It is my absolute pleasure to also take you and guide you in my home country in Slovenia.
In addition to guiding the mountains, I also enjoy having the opportunity to teach mountain climbing skills to every level of climbers. This is because I want everyone to enjoy Japanese mountains safely.
I am the first non-Japanese mountain guide registered with the Japan Mountain Guide Association. Please contact me if you would love to have great experiences in the mountains in all seasons with me!
