Trip Reviews

Great organization and awesome trip. In particular, the trip leads were very kind and made it a vey family-friendly trip by providing flexible choices in accommodations and even helping me with the luggage.

Joined as a solo traveler and could not have been more happy with the choic of my new year's trip this year. The solos were placed in the same rooms and it was super easy to connect and and form groups for skiing and parties at night. I would like to thank the team for the great organisation; the bus left pretty much on time from Shinjuku, rental ski gear was waiting at the lodge and it was even possible to have one dinner with pretty much everyone on the tour (~50 people). Overall great tour and I will definitely book again with Tokyo Snow Club.

Wonderful trip as always! Snowboarding and a new year countdown with Tokyo Snow Club in Hakuba has been our way of celebrating a new year three years in a row. :) This year, I could share all the fun with my family from USA. I cannot ask for more. Thanks to Keiji and all staff to make this trip so memorable!
