Discover the deep powder of Hakuba and its great onsen (hot springs), with this backcountry skiing trip along with a certified mountain guide.
Located at the heart of the Japan Alps, the Hakuba Valley is one of the best backcountry skiing destinations in the country. Join me on this 5-day trip and enjoy the steep alpine terrain of Hakuba and its famous hotsprings!
The Valley of Hakuba is located in Honshu, Japan’s central Island. Incredible powder, steep coulouirs and great tree runs await you there!
From January to April, we can stay at the Nakanoyu Onsen, a ryokan with an outdoor hot spring (onsen). If you come after mid-March, you also have the option of staying the Renge Onsen, a mountain hut with an onsen. So, after a great day of skiing, you will be able to relax and rest in this great outdoor hot springs!
Taking a bath in the onsen while you enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding snow-capped mountains is truly a unique experience! Another plus of this tour is that we have the option of using the lifts of the nearby ski resorts to access the backcountry.

Jun is a responsible and reliable guide. He is also knowledgeable on the local flora and fauna and managed to show us quite a few interesting alpine flowers, birds and animals. He is kind and helpful and converses well in English. I will not hesitate to recommend him to any anyone needing an English speaking guide in Japan.
Just back from Hakuba –Japan and I’m so pleased to confirm we got such a great experience with Iwao who has provided a service above all expectations. Indeed assisting a family confronted to a new environment requires a certain level of patience and attention and all the family appreciated his sense of responsibilities and seriousness which allowed us to really enjoy this region by experiencing touring, hicking and of course skiing in immaculate powder. Iwao was very discreet but always acted to ensure we could take the best of all Hakuba mountains could offer to us during these 5 days.This experience will for sure remain in all our minds for long and this will be mainly thanks to Iwao ! Best, Arnaud
We had a wonderfull ski touring trip with Iwao in Gunma. Iwao brought us in various beautifull landscapes to found very good spring snow. He is a very professional guide that can adapt to clients will and conditions! We had great time sharing our experiences about nature and mountains. The second day, we had a long tour with beautiful views on gunma\'s region and finissing along a river in an amazing forest. It was great fun to wait the last train in the midel of nowhere at sunset to come back to our village! Iwao has perfectly organised the trip bringing me to nice local onsen, restaurant and hôtel! Wonderfull trip to recommand!
