W-Asobi offers guiding services for mountain hiking, cycling, city walking, and other activities according to your needs. Both English and Japanese speaking guides are available.

Our specialty area is within Nagano Prefecture, especially around Matsumoto, Azumino, and the Northern Alps. (We can take you anywhere in Japan upon request, but for sustainability reasons, we recommend that you use a guide who is local to the area as much as possible.)

During high season such as Japanese Golden Week(end of April - beginning of May), summer mountain hiking season(end of July - end of the August), autumn foliage season(end of September -  beginning or October), etc., it becomes difficult to keep a guide available, and we may have to decline your request.

Many lodges limit the number of guests due to the COVID-19 measures. Even if our guides are available, we may not be able to reserve lodges.

If you have a rough idea of your itinerary and destination, please inquire about the itinerary as soon as possible!

Please inquire about the schedule using the application form on this page. After confirming some level of participation and agreement on the details of your request at a subsequent meeting, we will make a formal application.
