Are you ready to discover what all the fuss about the Japanese powder snow is about? Then get ready to be blown away on this outstanding backcountry skiing trip to Honshu planned just for you.

Honshu is Japan’s main island, home to Tokyo, Mount Fuji and many other major cities and cultural sites. There’s plenty of ski resorts to choose from. Some of my favorites include Hakuba, Myoko, Madarao, Joetsu, Tohoku and Hirayu. Depending on the weather conditions, your previous experience, expectations and the amount of days you wish to stay, I’ll choose the right one for us. Plus, you’ll get to relish in Japan’s hospitality and exquisite local cuisine.

I personally would recommend you to stay for 3 days to get the most of this experience. Nonetheless, the duration of this trip is up to you. We can ski for a day or more and I’ll make sure you have a wonderful trip no matter what you choose.

So, what are you waiting for? Just press the request button and get ready to enjoy the unbelievable Japanese powder snow.

About the guide

I am a JMGA mountain guide based in the seaside town of Miura in Kanagawa prefecture, offering a mix of outdoors guiding activities in both the mountains and the sea. What I value the most in guiding is to of course guide my clients safely but also for my clients to spend a quality time in the rich nature. Exposing yourself in the rich nature by taking part in outdoor activities, and by removing everything in between you and the nature, I believe that you’ll be able to experience the extraordinary. It could be the overwhelming feel from witnessing the change in landscapes through seasons, or that you learnt to speak to your own body and heart, or that you deepened the understanding of the local area, and of course it could be that precious moment where you can experience this together with other people!

I am also certified in Japan Avalanche Network (JAN) at Level 2.
In the summer, I guide in the mountains, mainly in the North Japan Alps, and sea kayak, and in the winter I take clients backcountry skiing.
Whatever the discipline, my focus is always for my clients to be able to “feel” and to be one with the nature. The integral part of the fun is to interact with the locals, to meet the local culture, and to breathe in the air there as a total package!
So, in the summer I like to take clients deep into the mountains accessed by using both the sea kayak and your climbing / hiking skills, as well as staying in tents at night. I think it is a pity if you only spend time in the mountains or only in the sea!
And in the winter, I’d like to show my clients that backcountry skiing is not all about chasing powder but it is about getting joy from the mountains in totality.

I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing a quality time in the land of varying seasonal beauties!
