Seki Onsen owned and ran by a local family for over the past forty years is one of Japan’s oldest snow fields. With no groomed runs and only 2 lifts, it is an off piste and powder haven! 🎥 @minttours
Sumo is one of Japan’s most well-known sports, and a highly authentic Japanese cultural experience in and of itself. . Sumo wrestlers have a very harsh lifestyle, making it more and more difficult to attract new recruits and thus the sport has an uncertain future. . The official sumo basho (tournaments) take place six times a year, beginning in January and then occurring every other month through November. . 📷 Ryan Miglinczy ・・・ #Repost @bellacove.journeys
GREEN SEASON! As beautiful in summer as it is in winter. Which is your favourite season? I know what ours is!!
There’s no denying it, COVID-19 has turned our lives upside down in ways we never thought imaginable. And although it seems ridiculous given the social and travel restrictions globally to be writing a post about bookings for the 2020/21 Japan snow season, all we’re thinking about is returning to our Ikigai Lodge. And despite the uncertainty of the world right now, we want to hold onto the hope of another fun, adventurous season in Japan and we want to make it simple for you to live this dream with us. As such, we want to offer you 19% off your 2020/21 booking (discount code COVID-19SUCKS). Additionally, we want you to pay nothing until 1st of September 2020. Keen to join us on our post iso adventure? We want to see you this coming winter. So book away. Keep the dream alive.

They say “no friends on a pow day”? We disagree! Nothing beats a day of riding with your best pals! Who are you riding with this season, in Japan? Photo: @nikita_sidelcev
