Like surfing, but on powder snow- Japanese snow toy "Yukiita" powder surfing!

Late December - End of February

Enjoy powder snow surfing as well as a beautiful view from a Biei hilltop!
Enjoy Japanese powder snow, "Japow", as you slide down the hill.

Have you ever heard of a "Yukiita"? It is a kind of Japanese snow toy.
It is like a snowboard, but it doesn't have bindings and doesn't require snowboarding boots.
"Yukiita" is a kind of snowboarding that doesn't require any foot binding, so it feels more like surfing than snowboarding! What's more, it's easier than snowboarding for beginners.
Let's enjoy Yukiita, beautiful views and powder snow on a Biei hilltop!

No worries here- the guide will show you how to snowboard.

Falling down in the fluffy snow is so much fun!
 Let’s have fun together!
