Tohoku Powder Tour

FULLY GUIDED & HOSTED RESORT & BACKCOUNTRY POWDER TOUR

After selling out again last season, this year we’ve tweaked it slightly having you now start the tour amongst the amazing snow monsters in Zao Onsen!

From Tokyo, you’ll be whisked away at 300km/hr on a Shinkansen train up to the snow city of Yamagata. From there you will be met by your guide and driven to the beautiful Meitoya-So Ryokan for your first two nights nestled below one of the most beautiful resorts in the Tohoku region, Zao Onsen. Many skiers travel here seeking out its therapeutic onsens, or to see it’s famous snow monsters, we will also seek out its epic pow.

The amazingly deep powder, delicious food and distinct lack of crowds makes this area of Japan very special

Here we will explore the resort and slack-country by day and wander the streets at night, dropping into a local brewery and sake bar. After your first days skiing, we will be taking you to Yamagata town where we you’ll be treated to amazing Kaiseki dinner at a traditional Japanese restaurant, complete with a private Maiko performance.

After your fill of snow monster powder, we’ll head up to Morioka city for 5 nights in the middle of a very cool city. At night you’ll get to check some cool bars and amazing restaurants and during the day we’ll be able to pick and choose the best conditions from a variety of resorts such as Geto Kogen, Appi Kogen, Hachimantai, Shizukuishi and Tazawako. Each resort offers loads of that famous Japanese powder you’ve come for with hardly any foreigners apart from yourselves.

For your last three nights, you’ll travel up to northern Tohoku where you enjoy Aomori Springs deserted powder or head to the famous Hakkoda to ascending to the peak and explore the limitless backcountry possibilities amongst the snow-monsters! With two guides, two vans and a road that rings the mountains that makeup Hakkoda Ski Resort, we have the option of going wide and blasting fresh deep pow down the 654 meters of vertical to the road before pressing repeat!

Expect to see very few foreigners, enjoy epic amounts of powder, relax in 1,900-year-old onsens, and be blown away by unique cultural experiences and of-course amazing food. This tour will not only take you to some awesome backcountry areas but will also leave you with a true Japanese experience that cannot be missed. See the video below from one of our private tours we took through the region and up to Hokkaido last year!
