Sept 27th Only 1-Day Tour: Snow Monkeys & Local Festival in Azumino, Nagano

Taking place each year in the September, the Azumino O-Fune Matsuri or ‘Boat Festival’ is a spirited and raucous celebration of the rural community’s mythical origins.

Beginner backcountry tourFull-day Tours

Beginner backcountry tour

If you are new to backcountry (an area outside the area designed for leisure), we recommend beginner backcountry, where you will learn about topography and avalanches you need to know, and practice how to use avalanche equipment. In the field, we will carefully teach you how to snow hike, ensure safety, and tips for snowboard riding. We will solve each participant's doubts and anxieties so that even beginners can enjoy backcountry with peace of mind. Snowboarders who are not confident in skiing are encouraged to take freeride lessons. * Guide will be conducted by a lecturer at the Japan Avalanche Network avalanche workshop, but a beginner backcountry avalanche workshop will be simple and different from a full-fledged one.

8 Nights Shin-Etsu Trail Full Track Hike - Nozawa Onsen, JapanHiking

8 Nights Shin-Etsu Trail Full Track Hike - Nozawa Onsen, Japan

The 80km Shinetsu trail, the best woodland trail in Japan, runs over the ridges of the Sekida mountains at about 1,000 meters above sea level, forming a boundary between Nagano and Niigata prefectures. It is one of the few long trails in Japan. This area is blessed with a rich ecosystem nurtured by Japanese beech tree forests. Historically, there were 16 passages connecting Nagano with Niigata. The forests are perhaps best known for their beech trees. The tall, well-shaped beech trees form a corridor of nature along the path. The earth-packed trail also makes it easy to walk. Spring (from mid-June to the end of July) and autumn (from mid-September to the end of October) are great seasons to visit the trail. In the spring, the last traces of snow can be seen among new greenery and flowers bursting into bloom. In the fall, hikers can enjoy the brilliant colors of autumn leaves.
