This Tour not only met it's description, but exceeded it and my expectations. The ratio of us to coaches was often 2:1, and guaranteed 3:1. The coaches were not only knowledgeable, but had a wealth of experience and were from all different backgrounds. We were kept well informed and updated throughout the week with regards weather, and subsequently which resort we would be boarding at. The Mint Tours coaches and guides on the ground had an in-depth knowledge of the local area and had build solid relationships with people and businesses there. The pre-trip details are concise and accurate, particularly with advice on money, atms, credit cards, etc. In short, I am already looking at my next Mint Tour!

Japow + Great group of girls = Awesome!!!

I had the most amazing time on this tour! Such a great experience with awesome coaches and a great group of girls. My riding definitely improved and the daily pilates with Fi helped alleviate any soreness.

It was a late booking and Ris was super helpful in organising it all at such short notice.

I would definitely recommend anybody wanting to experience snowboarding in Japan, then Mint are a great company to go with.

All I can say is this trip was epic! My first trip to Japan and what better way to experience it than with Mint Chicks!

Great girls, coaches, hosts, lodgings and food. Not to mention the powder and outdoor onsen. 20 out of 10 for sure!

I had been on other trips to Japan (mainly Niseko) organised through other tour companies prior to booking a trip with Mint Tours. I can honestly say Mint Tours trips are superior to the rest. The people that work at Mint are awesome and dedicated to making sure you have the best time.

Myoko Kogen and Madarao are unreal spots - I have been to a few other areas around Japan but these two are definitely my favourite. They get awesome snow and have a really cool vibe - they don't get as busy as other resorts such as Hakuba and Niseko but they still have good nightlife and less people on the slopes! You also get more of an authentic Japan experience.

I really can't wait to go back, can't rate these tours highly enough!

I did the mint chicks Myoko tour in February and it was amazing!! I had the most epic time on and off the snow.

Mint tours were super helpful from the time I enquired to do the tour to when I left japan. We had amazing coaches and hosts, the snow was amazing and each night was always a good time exploring the town!

I rate this tour very highly, loved it!!
