Your Chance to shred the deepest snow with your best friends

Hello people connected to me through international debauchery in various nations. I have a proposal to make:

Let's get up to 16 people, fly to Tokyo, visit a robot bar, bus to Hakuba and then ski pow and eat sushi for a week. Train back to Tokyo and fly home to make money for next year's Japow trip. 

US$ 1,800 per person includes:

- One night in the Shinjuku Prince Hotel in downtown Tokyo

-7 nights in a private Hakuba Chalet with breakfast supplies included

- Bus transfer from Nagano to our house in Hakuba

- 5 day Hakuba Valley Lift Ticket (Valid at 10 ski areas)

- Use of a rental car in Hakuba

*We can take up to 16 people total in the Slopeside Chalet


Here is the itinerary: 

  • Jan. 19: - Fly to Tokyo on a flight of your choice (Stay away from China Eastern Air). 
  • Jan. 20:  - Arrive in Tokyo.
    • Make your way to the Shinjuku train station in downtown Tokyo. Tokyo has 2 main airports, Narita (NRT) and Haneda (HND). Each is about a 50 minute train ride from Shinjuku Station and will cost up to $30 (depending on the train). 
    • From the Shinjuku Station, walk to the Shinjuku Prince Hotel.

We will all meet at the Shinjuku Prince Hotel sometime on Jan. 20th. 

  • Jan. 20 - 21: Stay at the Shinjuku Prince Hotel in twin rooms (2 single beds) and party in Tokyo.


  • Jan. 21 - Take Shinkansen (bullet train) line to Nagano  (about $80 per person).
    • A bus will meet us in Nagano and will take us all to the Hakuba Slopeside Chalet. 
  • Jan. 21 - 28:  Stay in the Slopeside Chalet for 7 nights. Shred any of the 10 different ski areas in the Hakuba Valley. Your included 5-day lift ticket is valid at all 10 ski areas. 
  • Ski any of the 10 ski areas in the Hakuba Valley. Lift tickets are not included in package price because some people have the Collective Pass and others may not want to ski every day. 
  • Jan 28 - This itinerary ends. I will drive you to the bus station so you can catch a bus to Nagano and then a bullet train to Tokyo and either get on your return flight or spend some more time in Tokyo.
