Japan Powder Culture Tours are all about designing lifetime memories, and this guided tour will stay in the recesses of your mind for years to come. Your guide/instructor will introduce you to the best skiing that Nagano has on offer. Our tours cater for the advanced skiers who wish to experience as much powder as possible and explore the “slack country” of each of the resorts. Your Japanese ski adventure is not complete without being immersed in a culture that has to be experience to be appreciated. Visit the world famous snow monkeys up close, be entertained by a traditional Geisha performance, be entertained by the Taiko Drum, Shamisen guitar and lion dance, participate in a Karate performance, spend an optional recovery day or bad weather day exploring one of Japan’s oldest castles and temples in Matsumoto and Nagano, soak in the rejuvenating Onsens, taste the local sake and beer recipes and visit historic Shibu Town. And let’s not forget the second night where we all eat together at the Sushi train followed by an epic night in the karaoke bar, and the list doesn’t include the hidden gems we have up our sleeve that will amaze you and surprise you along the way.
