We will meet at Fujiyoshida.
We can stay in one of the huts on the mountain. Here is a one: Sato-goya - http://goo.gl/j1H4dX
Equipment: You can hire hiking shoes and clothing items as well as other gears from Yamarent - http://www.yamarent.com/en/
It is an online rental shop, which allows you to reserve online, and you can receive the items by postal delivery to your accommodation in Japan or collect and fit the gears in their shops located near Shinjuku station in Tokyo or Kawaguchiko station near Mt Fuji.

I wish you a very warm welcome from Hokkaido, the north island of Japan. The dream spot for any fan of powder skiing!
I'm Jun, I'm a JMGA (Japan Mountain Guides Association) mountain and ski guide. I'm also a ski and telemark instructor. I graduated from the Hokkaido University. I have been skiing all around Hokkaido and I know every corner of this incredible island. I'm also an expert in avalanche safety management.
I'm guiding my friends and clients in all the most beautiful places of Hokkaido: Shiretoko (UNESCO World Nature Heritage), Daisetsuzan National Park, Rishiri, Niseko, Yotei volcano, Asahikawa... hiking, skiing and mountaineering.
Have a look to the different tours I propose to have more info on what you can experience here and get in touch with me. I will be very happy to help you organising your trip and guide you in our beautiful mountains. I'm also the director of the Hokkaido Mountain Guides Association (HMGA) which includes around 84 guides.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
