About the Guide

 
 

I am a JMGA certified Stage II Mountaineering Guide, and am also certified with Technical Rope Rescue license.
My father’s passion got me started in skiing and mountaineering early in my life - I competed in Cross Country skiing during my high school in universities years at the National level and I’ve been a mountain guide since 1996 when I moved to Hokkaido.
I also appear regularly in mountain related media such as magazines, TV programmes and radio channels. My favourite guiding activity is backcountry skiing, especially when I guide clients to remote places for untracked powder runs, which are earned by hiking up. Mt Teshiodake is my favourite destination in Hokkaido for this. I also surf in the summer!

My extensive climbs and expeditions abroad include the Ski descent of Denali, Sea kayak and Ski expedition along Aleutian islands, Sea kayak and ski expedition in Greenland, Himalaya skiing, Climb of Alpamayo south west route, Ski descent of Mt Pisco in Peru, Field assistant in Antarctica over its winter etc.

I will fully support you on your adventure in this land of north for all four seasons, let it be a pristine powder skiing experience in the world’s best powder snow or the summer mountains or the sea. Whether you are a beginner eager to learn the world of mountains or an experienced mountaineer looking to improve your skills, or an advanced mountain goer keen to enjoy the mountains at the limit of your abilities, I will be very happy to guide you for you to achieve your goals.
