Anthony was the best guide/teacher we’ve ever had in our years of boarding/skiing. He has incredible knowledge of the back country round the myoko kogen region. Considering we arrived at the worst season on record he still managed to find us fresh tracks. I doubt anyone knows those mountains better then him. I never realised how dangerous it is in Japan to go back country after hearing stories from other boarders of people nearly dying in kanko… anyone planning should definitely have Anthony for a day and you’ll gain a ridiculous amount of knowledge. Where he decides to take you will depend on so many factors but you’ll get the best on what’s to offer that day in the myoko region no doubt. We couldn’t believe how cheap he was compared to other companies and feel really grateful to have found him. Couldn’t recommend him any more highly. Will definitely be back for the japow experience next year hopefully he is not booked out.
I was in Myoko Region for a period in late January that was showing signs of less than average snowfall.
My mate and I had a couple of amazing powder days, which trumped anything I had experienced before… until I met Anthony!
My mate and I went with Anthony on a guided tour of the Ikenotaira back country and we were blown away! His expert advice, friendly character and knowledge of the area was invaluable. I highly recommend his services, you will have the chance to go some places where very few people know about.
Book him for a tour soon before he’s all booked out!
L’équipe de Japow Experience pour son premier stage qui c’est déroulé du 18 au 27 février!!!!!! What a week togheter 🙂
Week with Japow Experience from the 11th to 19th.
I met Anthony last year in Lotte Arai where he guided me, 2 mate and my youngest son Joachim for 3 days working for Myoko Snowsports.
We had an awesome time and I couldn’t wait to come back and rip some more Japow with Anthony in 2020 together with Joachim and his older brother Jannick.
Anthony had made a fantastic plan for us to ski 8 different places including also skinning up a volcano before descending it.
Unfortunately we had to cut the planned 8 days trip short due to an acute family situation so we only got 3 days of skiing before we had to return to London.
The snow wasn’t quite as great as last year but we had an unforgettable time skiing in Akakura Kanko, Lotte Arai and Suginohara with Anthony.
He knows the extensive area of Myoko like his own back pocket so the lines he picks are amazing, he takes all safety measures very serious and skis like a pro too.
On top of that he speaks perfect English, knows every little gem of where to eat and drink around Akakura where we stayed, prices his guiding very reasonably and is a genuine super nice fella.
We couldn’t have asked for any better service at all and can’t wait for next season to come back and rip some more bottomless Japow with Anthony.
