Experience an amazing 9 day splitboard tour on the slopes of Japan, from Niseko to Asahidake, with IFMGA certified mountain guide, Hirofumi.
When it comes to an all encompassing splitboarding experience in Japan, this 9 day tour in Hokkaido can’t be beat. Venturing from Niseko to Asahidake, you will get to see a great deal of the country’s best splitboarding locations. You will also get to see a number of the country’s best winter highlights, from peaks and resorts, to onsens (hot springs) and beautiful back country spots.
Every day of this amazing trip will provide you with a different experience. Hence giving this trip an adventurous feeling.
The powder throughout Hokkaido is incredible. And we will go to where that powder is best. The trip will begin in Niseko, where you will get to enjoy 2 days of great splitboarding descents. From there, we will make our way to Hokkaido’s Mount Fuji: Yotei-San (1,898m). Depending on weather conditions, you may get to enjoy a thrilling 1,500 metre descent from the top of the peak to the bottom. After a day in Sapporo, we will then make our way to Asahikawa. Once there, you will get to enjoy more fantastic powder before settling in for the night, and enjoying another onsen.
From Asahikawa, you will get to enjoy splitboarding at yet another great Hokkaido peak, Asahidake (2,291m). After that, you will get to experience 2 days of great back country splitboarding in Furano-Dake and Sapporo, before returning home.
There is a lot to do on this amazing trip. And there is a lot to see, as well. The views are breathtaking and the descents are a lot of fun. The winter activity possibilities in Hokkaido are plentiful, and on this 9 day splitboarding tour, you will get to enjoy several of them. All you have to do is send me a request. It would be my pleasure to guide you.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
