More Info

Japan is an archipelago on the eastern edge of Asia, with four main islands: Honshu, Hokkaido, Shikoku, and Kyushu. The fascinating Japanese culture combines ancient traditions with amazing natural beauty and futuristic technological advances. Is a true paradise not only for powder junkies but also for curious minds looking for unique experiences. Don’t leave the country without soaking on an onsen bath or trying a heated toiled seat!




Good to Know


What’s the weather like?

Japan is a long collection of islands, therefore the climate varies considerably from one region to the other. During the winter, it’s mild in central regions and almost tropical in the small southern islands, but it can be freezing cold in the northern island of Hokkaido, where snow and ice dominate the landscape. Summer is hot and humid and June is the rainy season in most of the country.

Getting There

Tokyo’s Narita International Airport and Osaka’s Kansai are the main international flight gateways. Tokyo’s Haneda Airport also offers international connections. You can get to Sapporo’s Chitose Airport (Hokkaido), from Haneda Airport in about 1 ½ hours.

Best time to visit:

If you are looking for the best powder, then you should visit in January and February, and you could also be there for the amazing Sapporo Ice Festival in February. Spring is considered to be the best time to visit for hiking and other activities. You should try to avoid -or book in advance- for Golden Week (April 29 to May 6), as it is the longest holiday of the year in Japan and everybody is travelling.

Chika is an Incredible guide alongside being an fantastic person. The 1day hike up and down Fuji was great, speedy, with enough rests at different stages. At the top she made us coffee which was very thoughtful. En route home she stopped into a number of shops in order for us to get some food, water and some great recommendations for Sake as gifts home to out friends and family\'s A fantastic trip was had thanks to Chika and her excellent organisation and communication skills. Not to mention she is lovely and fun to hike alongside. If you are looking to climb Fuji whether it be a 1 or 2 day trip, look no further than Chika as your guide.

Yuki Nagaya replaced Takao and did a perfect job. Daisetsuzan is very nice, scenery is tremendous and the trail is challenging. Onsen was available in all mountain huts. Apart from bring a great guide; Yuki prepares delicious food.
