Ever wished to go on for a hike
in deep mountains,forests
or even rock climbing in Japan?
Good news for those who look for
an adventurous guided tour.


We areinvites you to various alpine guided tours in Japan.
Cveto Podlogar, a Slovenian UIGAM montain guide,
ex-national team skier and truly an outdoor guy  is
now the first and only none-Japanese authorized alpine guide
registered in the Alpine Guide Association of Japan,
invites you to all kinds of mountaineering activities
in Japan all the year round.
 
 
 For millions of tourists from abroad,
not enough information on Japanese mountains have been provided,
which lead some foreign hikers, skiers and snow boarders to meet tragic accidents in mountains in Japan .
In early 1990’s Cveto Podlogar himself was one of those happy-go-lucky climbers
who didn’t really understand why many climbers would meet accidents every year on easy-looking
mountains in Japan.
Mountains in Japan are much different from others in overseas.
With different flora and the island’s restless change of weathers under unique climatic
and geographic conditions, one can easily face unexpected distresses.
Even for the Japanese, the best way to enjoy exploring these mountains is of course to find an
experienced local guide.
But it has been hard to find a local guide who understands English.
For English speakers
Of course,You are welcome to join our ordinary fixed guiding service (sutaurday-sunday)
Unfortunately we don't have English web sight except this but
You can contact us by e-mail or telephone in English!!
And Please chack our report from each activity,
even only photos I hope you can get some idea

 Comment from our foreigner guest
Ski in around Hakkuba

We spent 6 great backcountry skiing days with C&C in the Hakuba area over New Year.
Skiing was excellent, relativly short ascents with seals BC alpine style (ski touring)
and long descents in great, virgin powder snow off the beaten track.
Cveto’s guiding was very professional and we felt very safe at all times.
We stayed at a very traditional, japanese style lodge including authentic food
and regular trips to various onsens. Last December,

we joined the memorable iceclimbing C&C excursion on Yatsugatake in theNagano area.
Next we plan a Mt.Fuji climb on skis in Spring.
Guide Cveto, originally from Slovenia, is highly recommendable for group or private mountaineering,
ice climbing or skiing (alpine/telemark) tours.
He has a extensive local and international mountaineering and skiing experience,
speaks very good English and Japanese and has a very good personality.
He's Japanese wife is a skilled skier/mountain climber supporting the regular excursions.

Mt.FUJI 2010.MAY13

Very early Wednesday morning we set sail for the majestic mountain.
I was super excited and happy.
We started in the dark but was soon overtaken by a beautiful red sunrise.
Cloudless skies and glorious sunshine followed us up to the top.
We went up the north side of the mountain. The wind was pretty strong,
but with a safe guid in the front it felt really good the whole way.
We had skis on our backs and hoped that the snow would soften in the sun.
The wind from the north did that the snow stayed cold,
but after we had walked around the top to the south summit,
we found a south slope with perfect spring snow.
After a long traverse further down and a bit of hiking we came back to the car good
and tired but very happy. It was a very professional program,
I felt safe all the way. Cveto also had plenty fine stories and was a perfect trip buddy.
I had simply an experience of a lifetime. Thank you so much for a wonderful trip:)"

Mt.FUJI 2010 MAY 15
3AM: wake call, we devore our ham&cheese sandwiches, wash it with a
hot coffee. A few energy bars and go, full speed in the direction of
Fuji!
We've checked a few comments and videos on the net. We know conditions
can be tough out there, especially the ice and wind at the top...

Luckily Cveto had booked specially for us Perfect Weather Conditions!
Sunny, less than 35km/h wind, 0 degrees at the start of the subaru
line fifth station, -7 degrees expected at the top. Big Blue sky!
Chance ! Let's go !

We meet Cveto at the parking, it's freezing, so after a quick
equipment check, we move on.
Soon after we reach the snow we switch straight to crampons, the snow
is too hard to use the skins. Oh god how is it going to be 1km
above?..

Climb is great, slow as we decided to take it easy, rest often, take
pictures, enjoy those lucky weather conditions.
2/3 from the top, Cveto advices to use the rope because of potential
strong wind above. He is right, top of Fuji gets steeper and wind
combined with ice could make us loose our balance.

The view above the clouds is great, the climb is great, we feel very safe.
Still the worry of skiing on ice at the top stays in the head
though... You don't know the snow conditions on the top until you
reach it, so we climb.

First Tori at sight, it feels close, but it takes almost an hour to
reach. Short breath. Nice picture sessions.
Target on next Tori now which is easier to reach.
That's it we are at the top !

Snow is very hard but it seems skiable, dangerous, but skiable.
Cveto is here anyway, we'll follow his instructions, let's relax and
enjoy. It's has been 6h30 since we left the parking.

Very icy at the top, wind is acceptable, temperature as well: time for
baguette, cheese and saucisson!
Nice one hour break.

Let's concentrate now on the skiing. Cveto checks the snow for us.
Doable but with extreme care.
So we attach pools on the bag, and secure skis to the shoes.. it
proved to be useful later for me...
The first turns with the axe in the hands.. just in case...You do not
want to fall in the first 300meters or loose a ski....
Actually i did encounter a small technical problem, quickly handled by
Cveto, who was there when and exactly where needed.
Thank you Cveto ! I am still in one piece !

First Tori, now the snow is GREAT, time for photo session : ski in
heaven above the clouds!
Still you do not want to fall, so we manage the good balance of
excitment, fun and security focus.
Slope is great, never ending... conditions are perfect.

Spring snow conditions when we reach the bottom of Mt Fuji, very
heavy, but still it's fun ski with some speed.
So we ski until the end of the snow, some walk to find the very last
snow, nice last very steep slope, nice last turns: we skied almost to
the road !
BIG SMILE!
3PM Mission accomplished!

Thank you Cveto! One more dream accomplished, and in perfect security
conditions; it has been a nice adventure.
Can not wait for next season !
