Late change of plans had us find this gem on happenstance, and our group couldn’t have been happier. To be clear, this probably isn’t right if you’re looking for a romantic getaway or ritzy boutique hotel experience, but if your in Japan for the japow! And have a group that wants to get after it, I couldn’t say there’s a better way to go. Simon is a great host and guide. I gained a friend/mate on this trip, and will be back to visit.

Wasn't sure what to expect, since there was very little info available before we got there, but after exchanging emails with Simon, we knew we'd get along. Super glad we did.

Just an epic time. 6 days straight of riding (resort and side/slackcountry), onsens, traditional food, and just straight up living like a bohemian local with Simon as our live-in guide.

Accommodations are in a traditional Japanese house (I still have the dents in my head from the low doorways!) with a single bathroom, so if you're looking for luxury, this ain't it. But, it was plenty cozy, clean, fun, and absolutely perfect for what we were looking for which was to shred some great powder, experience local life, chill with new friends, and rely on someone else to do the planning (thanks, Simon!). We arrived as customers and left as friends. Will definitely be back!

Otaru & Niseko Powder Chaser

I signed up for this tour for the end of January 2020, and I'm SO glad that I did! Aside from the super competitive pricing of the tour, Simon and Soul Tours showed me everything Japan had to offer! Simon has been going on his 7th or 8th year snowboarding in and around Niseko, so he knows the resorts, sidecountry and backcountry like the back of his hand. He was super knowledgeable about snow conditions, avalanche danger and where to find the best powder on any given day! I never felt in any danger when hiking for the best powder turns, even in his secret powder stash locations! Aside from finding the best snow, Simon showed me the best of Niseko and the surrounding areas, taking me to his favorite ramen and japanese food locations, snowboard shops and bars. It was a good time! Lodging was excellent and comfortable as well. If I had to do it all over again, hands down I would be choosing Soul Tours. Thanks again Simon!!
