Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec
Let me take you explore some of the best backcountry snowboarding areas of Hokkaido with this Asahikawa guided splitboarding tours.
Japan is known for having some of the best powder in the world. Being an island, it receives the cold wind currents from Siberia that get mixed with the humid air from the Pacific Ocean and make the perfect snow storms that cover its mountains with dry powder.
Asahikawa is located in the northernmost island of the country, Hokkaido. It lies northeast of Sapporo, the biggest city in the island. This amazing snowboarding area is one of the last places that remains devoid of crowds and tourists. So it’s the perfect spot to go looking for amazing powder slopes!
There are endless splitboarding and ski touring options to choose from.
There are some nice ski resorts in the area, like Kamui, Asahidake, Furano, Kurodake and Tokachi-dake, where we’ll go climbing in search of your perfect run.
I can guide you there for one or several days, and I promise you will never get enough of this fantastic winter paradise.
Does such an adventure sound interesting? Then please send me a request to book this Asahikawa guided splitboarding tour and let’s plan your next snowboarding adventure.

Renting ski equipment in Japan is not easy but I can try to do it for you. I will need you to give me the model and the size of the DYNASTAR boots that fit your feet.
I wish you a very warm welcome from Hokkaido, the north island of Japan. The dream spot for any fan of powder skiing!

Jun was a very safe and knowledgeable guide for our one day skiing trip for Yotei. He knew lots about the snowpack and the local wildlife and trees. We felt safe the entire time and really appreciated the pace he went at. Would recommend!
Jun is an outstanding guide, a true expert in his field. He was attentive to our needs and desires and very ably provided us with a fantastic experience skiing in the Asahikawa area backcountry. I will book other trips with him and highly recommend him to others!
We had a fantastic and unforgettable trip to the top of Mt. Yotei with Jun-san. He was very friendly, helpful and also flexible. Hope to do another trip with him soon!

The weather was perfect and I trekked according to my plan. Guide Jun is patient and knowledgeable.
Amazing experience. Took 5hrs to summit. Cloudy and little wind made it easier. Skies opened up 100M from the top. We summited and then we skied fresh powder into the crater. Well worth it.
We had an excellent time hiking up to the summit of Mt Kurodake. Jun gave us a good intro to the flora and fauna on the way up and regaled us with stories all the way up. He set a pace suitable for us and ensured our safety throughout. Jun comes highly recommended!
The trip was great. The views are extrodinary.
Wow what a Tour! Jun guided us perfectly, we made it to the top of yotei. An Incredible experience!
Jun Is An excellent and cheerful guide who will help you find the skiing you want what ever your level

Jun was an excellent guide! He took us to some fantastic tree skiing on Yotei and we got to do a few laps since the weather did not allow us to summit. We had a really great trip and would highly recommend Jun as a guide.
Jun did an incredible job guiding us through Daisetsuzan National Park. He was attentive, friendly and courteous. His knowledge of the local flora, fauna, and landscape was superb (that rock garden in particular left a deep impression on me). His cooking was superb. And, we felt like we experienced aspects of the Japanese outdoors and Japanese culture that are very hard to reach.
