Info For You

What time and where do we collect equipment?

Equipment is available for fitting and collection from our Village Shop in Akakura Onsen village. Please see our Contact Us page for our address and a Village Map with our location.
Our Village Shop is open daily from 8am to 6pm.
You are welcome to pick up your equipment on the afternoon of your arrival from 2pm to 5:30pm (no additional charge).

Can you pick us up from our accommodation to come to your shop for equipment collection?

Yes. We would be glad to pick you up from your Myoko accommodation and bring you to & from our Village Shop for your equipment fitting. This service must be arranged prior to your arrival. Our reservations team will confirm a pick-up time/date with you at the time you make your reservation.

Can you pick us up to return our equipment, or can you collect our equipment from our accommodation?

Please return your equipment in-person at either our Champion Shop (located at the base of the Champion #1 chairlift in Akakura) or at our Village Shop (in Akakura Onsen village). Unfortunately we cannot collect you or your equipment from your accommodation when returning.

How does your valet service work?

We are glad to offer a complimentary overnight valet service for skis, poles and snowboards rented from us.
– When you rent your equipment we will check with you whether you would like to valet your skis/poles/snowboard overnight at either of our shops. Depending on which accommodation you are staying at, and your ability level, this will make things easier for you in the morning.
– You will then take boots, helmets, jackets, pants & gum boots back to your accommodation overnight. Your accommodation will have a boot room, meaning warmer boots the next day.
– In the morning you can walk to either of our shops in your snowboard boots or regular walking shoes (we recommend not to walk far in ski boots for comfort).
– If walking in regular shoes and carrying your ski boots you can then get changed into your ski boots at our shop. We can store your regular shoes during the day, or we also have lockers available.
– Your skies & poles or snowboard will be waiting for you with your name on.
– At the end of the day pop your skis/snowboard back on the rack, change back into your walking shoes, and walk back to your lodge carry your boots. This makes things much easier.
– Any children participating in Mini Mountaineers ski lessons (3-6 y/o) will have complimentary use of a locker (so their ski boots can be left with us overnight).
– For some accommodations it is easier to ski back there rather than use the Valet Service. Our team can advise you which will be easier.
– On your last day please return your equipment in-person inside one of our two shops.

Can my child have a rest day during their equipment rental period and not pay for that day?

Children with a 5-day equipment rental & lesson package may have one complimentary rest day. E.g. pay for 5 days and use them over a 6 day period.
For equipment rental only (without a 5-day plus lesson program) our equipment pricing includes discounts for consecutive-day rental from the 4th day onward. It is therefore better to simply rent for the entire of your stay and take advantage of this pricing, even if you have a rest day and don’t use your equipment one day.

What is the smallest size ski / snowboard equipment you have?

We generally have equipment available for children from 3 years old, and this is the minimum age for our group lesson programs.
We stock a small amount of specialist equipment for 2 year olds, for whom private lessons are available. Please contact our reservations team for more information at reservations@myokosnowsports.com

Can my child swap equipment during our stay and is there a fee?

If your child would prefer to try a different pair of boots for comfort, they are welcome to swap complimentary.
If they would like to swap from skis to snowboard (E.g. to try snowboarding for one day) they may have one complimentary swap back-and-forth.
Any additional swaps will incur a ¥1,000 service fee.

Do you have powder / performance equipment available for children aged 10 to 14?

We do stock some mid-fat children’s powder skis (E.g. the K2 Shreditor 85mm Jr). We keep these reserved for expert-level children (Level 5). There is no additional fee for these – they are the same rate as other children’s rental equipment.
If your child is expert level and you are interested in renting these skis please let our reservations team know when making your booking to ensure availability reservations@myokosnowsports.com

Is your equipment waxed and tuned?

Yes. We have expert equipment technicians and our equipment is kept in excellent condition. Skis & snowboards are waxed after every rental period, and are checked for any tuning requirements.

My child has their own boots, should we bring them, or rent?

If your child has their own boots we recommend bringing them.

Do your shop staff speak English?

Yes. Our team are from many countries around the world including Japan, and our services are primarily offered in English.

Should I book in advance?

We recommend booking well-prior to your arrival to ensure availability, particularly from early January to mid-February. Please contact our team at reservations@myokosnowsports.com if you have any questions.
