Japan 2016 Re-cap | The Adventure Project
The Adventure Project launched their first trips to Japan, this January. The following is a quick re-cap of the trips, with plenty of useful information for people considering a trip to Japan with us in 2017. So, we had 2 small groups go out with us to Japan for 4 weeks during January. We had 2, 2 week sessions with 5 guests in the first session and 6 in the second. We chose to go in January for a couple of reasons. Firstly, Japan is one of the most sure-fire places to go for powder in the early season. Statistically, Japan gets most of its snow in January and then February, so it's a pretty safe bet that you will get powder. We had fresh snow nearly every day, it was amazing. Secondly, Japan in January then fits in nicely time-wise, with our program in India that starts in mid-February. The plan for this trip was to try and see as much of the north island of Hokkaido in each 2 week session. We would base ourselves in Niseko for 5 nights, then Otaru for 3 nights, then Furano for 5
