Welcome to the #1 mountain in Japan for POWDER SNOW!

What people are saying about Simon's Powder Tours:

My day with you was more than I'd hoped for. Your knowledge of Aomori, Misawa and the surrounding area was so informative. As a tourist from the states visiting Japan I was not too enthusiastic about the trip. I was looking forward to seeing my new granddaughter and grandson. When my daughter Sarah suggested calling you to guide me around the area I was a little skeptical. Needless to say I enjoyed my experience tremendously. Knowing the language, where the nice restaurants were and your outdoor experiences just added a nice touch to the day. I would recommend anyone visiting Northern Japan or visiting people in the military there to take a day and spend it with you as their guide. My trip was to Japan was completed with my time with you.
