Representative of SHIGAKOGEN MOUNTAIN DISCOVERY, Shiga Kogen Mountain Activity
Born in Yamanouchi Town, Nagano Prefecture I started skiing at the age of 3 and have been active as an alpine skier and skicross athlete in Japan and abroad. Later I fell in love with powder snow in my hometown of Shiga Kogen, and began teaching skiing and working as a guide. Outside of the winter season, I have 11 years of experience as a river guide for rafting, canyoning, and SUP. I am currently based in Shiga Kogen, where I work as a guide covering all areas, from the mountains to the rivers.
