What a wonderful experience we had with Taka on a 3 hour snowshoe tour. She was an amazing guide, informative, interactive, and a bonus is that her English is perfect. It was our first time snowshoeing and we did not find it challenging. On an unexpected break, Taka provided warm drinks and snacks. I sense that she tailors the tour to individual groups, as we had plenty of time to stop and play in the snow. Overall an amazing experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to take a break from skiing!

Instruction was easy. Mountainside was beautiful. Taka is a very knowledgeable and able guide. The pleasure of the snow and her comments about the animal life and the trees made for a wonderful adventure!

We were looking for alternative activities while in Nozawa Onsen. Taka’s snowshoeing tour was brilliant. Taka really understands the environment and explained so much about the area. Taka took us through fresh snow and we experienced a side of Japan we had never seen before. It was quiet, fun and informative. We will definitely be joining Taka again when we travel to Nozawa Onsen again. Thank you Taka for making this trip to Japan so enjoyable and memorable.

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I was pregnant so couldn’t snowboard but am still fit and wanted to experience the mountain and the fresh air. We had a meter of snow! Taka was such a lovely guide and stopped often to tell me things about the trees, animals and village (and also give me a rest 😅). The views and the serenity of walking through the mountains with no one around was just amazing. I paid for two people to go just by myself and it was worth every penny and more. If your partner is snow boarding or skiing and you don’t ski but want adventure or you just want a great new adventure. Don’t hesitate. Thank you so much Taka. X

We met Taka on a cold snowy night for the walking tour of Nozawa Onsen. Her welcome warmed us up and we thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour which explained some of the history and customs of the town, especially the Fire festival.
