Powpow Japan delivered everything as promised and more. It’s hard work for a guy to babysit foreigners like us, sometimes for long days from dawn until dusk. We did a more personalized tour than what he offers groups, so we paid a little more. But it was not much money considering the value. I don’t think we could’ve pulled off such a great trip without him. If he’s not already booked for your travel dates, you should get on it now. Oh, he was also very flexible as we were somewhat indecisive on certain elements, and we shifted gears a few times seamlessly.
I was looking for a Japanese style of an experience, and Taku our friendly, service-oriented guide, more than delivered. He selected our comfortable accomodations in a Japanese Ryokan with a wonderful Onsen and guided us on three days of amazing skiing on the lightest snow imaginable at a different resort every day. Since English speakers aren’t found often in these parts, Taku’s translation and guiding skills were much appreciated. He is a local from this region of Japan, and I felt I received a great overview of a Japanese alpine experience.
Taku at PowPow Japan provided a top notch experience from start to finish. In the planning phase he was very helpful and patient answering our endless questions and customizing our trip. We (group of 3 adults) were thrilled with our Japanese style accommodations, the ski guide and local tour guide service, transportation and restaurant recommendations that he provided. The snow was great and the selection of resorts perfect. We had a wonderful time.
