    Took a trip up to mt gassan pole pole in yamagata... with our 11 month old baby, and 10 year old daughter... it was an amazing experience. Got to experience falling snow! The elder daughter had so much fun in the snow!

    My family enjoyed the trip very much. Beautiful weather while we were there. Nodi – the guide is superb. His service, guidance and knowledge is first class. And being just my family, he has been flexible. It is a beautiful place, not commercialize like Hokkaido. Highly recommended for people who are looking for a different type of holidays.
