iceclimbingjapan is a small operation operating over a large area – we cant be everywhere at once and demand is high as winter doesnt last forever. as Japan gains interest internationally each year demand increases, with much of the season booking out well before winter begins, so getting in early to confirm your place is recommended.

the winter climbing season lasts roughly from mid-November to the end of March. to streamline the high-demand trips we focus mt Fuji trips in december and Sendai ice & mixed trips between late January & late February. the rest of winter we can be anywhere the conditions are good.

go thru the site to get an idea of what you want then send us an email with any questions, ideas or bookings, being sure to mention:

  • number of people

  • each persons shoe size

  • the experience of each person

  • when you want to start, when you want to finish

  • what you want to climb

  • what you want from the trip

  • any peculiarities

then interact with us. theres things to be organized including dates, schedules, numbers, costs, route options, gear, transport & accommodation.


travel, accident, rescue and evacuation insurance is recommended. not all policies cover winter climbing so check this before purchasing. a trip interuption & cancellation policy is also a good idea – especially for climbers intending to ski before their climbing trip.

before confirmation and payment read the terms & conditions in THE SMALL PRINT section. confirmation by payment assumes these conditions have been accepted.
