Powpow Japan delivered everything as promised and more. It's hard work for a guy to babysit foreigners like us, sometimes for long days from dawn until dusk. We did a more personalized tour than what he offers groups, so we paid a little more. But it was not much money considering the value. I don't think we could've pulled off such a great trip without him. If he's not already booked for your travel dates, you should get on it now. Oh, he was also very flexible as we were somewhat indecisive on certain elements, and we shifted gears a few times seamlessly.

Great Japanese Ski & Cultural Experience

I was looking for a Japanese style of an experience, and Taku our friendly, service-oriented guide, more than delivered. He selected our comfortable accomodations in a Japanese Ryokan with a wonderful Onsen and guided us on three days of amazing skiing on the lightest snow imaginable at a different resort every day. Since English speakers aren't found often in these parts, Taku's translation and guiding skills were much appreciated. He is a local from this region of Japan, and I felt I received a great overview of a Japanese alpine experience.

Excellent experience

Taku at PowPow Japan provided a top notch experience from start to finish. In the planning phase he was very helpful and patient answering our endless questions and customizing our trip. We (group of 3 adults) were thrilled with our Japanese style accommodations, the ski guide and local tour guide service, transportation and restaurant recommendations that he provided. The snow was great and the selection of resorts perfect. We had a wonderful time.

Heliskiing and Spring boarding

Heliskiing
On top of Yakeyama
Our guide Takuma
I used Powpow Japan on two occasions. I heard about heliskiing in Yakeyama from a friend, but all the information was in Japanese. I contacted Takuma who called the organisation and booked on my behalf. He guided us through the beautiful back country. The helicopter ride and off piste riding on Yakeyama is by far my favorite snowboarding experience.

Takuma also took me for spring boarding in Chartmant Itoigawa. He picked us up early and drove us to the resort.
Takuma is a very experienced skiier and knows the mountains well. I will recommend Powpow Japan to any English speakers visiting the area, he is fluent in English and will help translate or book things for you.
I will be booking Takuma to be my tour guide for next season too.
