Visted Tenjin Lodge in the 2nd half of Feb 2017 for a three day guided backcountry tour. Scored a super deep day at Houdagi, as the big mountain was closed due to all the fresh snow, was a deep fun day lapping fresh lines in the forest. The next day was all time at Tenjin after the big dump, clear skies and deep pow. Scored some great runs off the ridge, it is an absolutely spectacular mountain with lines ranging from mellow to crazy! The Tenjin Lodge is comfortable, spacious and most importantly the staff were super helpful and you could see they wanted everyone to enjoy themselves whether that was families with small children or crew wanting to shred the gnar:)!

Spent a great week at Tenjin Lodge that included 3 days of guiding with Kieran. Had a big powder day at Houdagi, as the Ropeway was closed due to the 60+cm of fresh snow which was a heap of fun then the next day at Tenjin was all time, blue skies and fresh lines all day! Will be back for sure!

Outstanding Local Knowledge!

Tenjin Lodge is a great, cheap little pension right near the tenjindaira ski area, which has some of the sickest BC in all of Japan. Kieren not only offers some of the best value for money in terms of lodgings/food but also offers some great local knowledge and guiding expertise in what can be some pretty dangerous terrain. If you're considering spending any time in the Tenjin BC I strongly recommend starting off with a day with Kieren to start getting the lay of the land!!
