Backcountry Ski Japan & Cycle Japan Tours

 We pioneered backcountry ski guiding in Hokkaido in 1984 and ran our first road cycling tour in 1985. Our passion to explore Japan has shown us the extraordinary possibilities that exist in the far corners of this enigmatic land for authentic adventure tourism. Whether you are a backcountry skier chasing deep powder snow or a road cyclist wanting to cruise the endless smooth black top in Japan, we have something for you.

Our Philosophy

Regardless of which tour you join, I am personally involved in the planning and running and in many cases, will be your guide. I learned long ago that it is a bit self defeating to run an adventure travel company and spend all your time having adventures at your desk. So for me, it is in the field where I gain my greatest satisfaction, helping fellow travellers to discover more about themselves and Japan. On top of that, this level of service ensures I keep growing and learning about Japan, myself and the needs of those traveling with us.
