I invite you to a wonderful adventure in Hokkaido: a 2-day hiking traverse in the Daisetsuzan area!

Daisetsuzan is a mountainous area in the centre of the island of Hokkaido. In this trip, we’ll be hiking and admiring an scenic overlook of mounts Hakuundake and Asahidake.

Besides, if weather conditions are good, you can also see a stunning sunset and sunrise.

We will stay overnight at a lodge in Kurodake. You can rent sleeping bags there if you need to.

I also can provide an optional tour, like hiking to the summit of Asahidake which is an active volcano or to Susoai-daira Plateau, which is a large habitat of snow field alpine plants.

Furthermmore, I can also take you to an optional visit to Nakadake Onsen (hot spring).

If this trip sounds interesting to you, please contact me! You should consider that if you go hiking in July, it might include climbing on snowy gorge.

What people are saying about Jun



This was a really great trip! Jun-san made really our holiday a perfect one. We we're looking for powder and Jun really knew how to find this. Also he was very attent to make sure we were okay all day and we really felt save everywhere we went. Jun, thank you very very much!



We had a brilliant couple of days with Jun. At a difficult time in not the best season for Hokkaido, Jun was able to sniff out unexpected powder stashes and we skied some great snow! Really nice guy as well!



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!


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 culture that are very hard to reach. Andy and I had a phenomenal time.



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!
