Local JMGA mountain guide Kenichi will take you on an incredible adventure to explore ski descent from the top of world famous Mt. Fuji.


1 Day





Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan. Its beautiful individual peak is world famous. It is very popular for climbing to the summit in summer but you can also ski down in spring!

Can you imagine skiing down from the summit of Mt. Fuji at 3776m? It is absolutely fantastic! Around 5.30 am, we’ll put our boots and start the climb at 2,300 meters above sea level. We’ll follow the trail 1,400 meters up and use our crampons in the difficult sections.

I promise to give you memorable experience of your ski ascent / descent of Mt. Fuji and exploration of the Japan Alps backcountry on skis. Please contact me if you want to be a part of this challenging ski tour! I will be very happy to be your guide!

Mountain Guide

I'm a ski and mountain guide from the Japanese Mountain Guide Association (JMGA). I guide backcountry skiing, mountaineering, hiking and canyon climbing (Sawanobori) mainly on Honshu, the main island of Japan.
When I was younger, I spent a couple of years in Canada and in Salt Lake City skiing and working as a rafting guide, as well as spent 2 summer seasons in Switzerland as a hiking guide.

I started backcountry ski guiding when I based myself in Minakami and started one of the first backcountry ski guide companies in the area in 2002. I'm travelling every year to Europe and North America for ski trip with my clients.

Please contact me if you wish to come to Japan and would like to enjoy our beautiful environment while doing an exciting outdoor activity.
