Welcome to  Mountain Swell

Step back to Nature

We are an Adventure Guiding and Photography Company based in both Aoshima, Miyazaki and Nozawa Onsen, Nagano.

Our aim is to promote Miyazaki Prefecture and invite more people to explore this undiscovered part of Japan. We offer FREE information to help get you started on planning your trip to this incredible area. Miyazaki is not built up like a lot of places in Japan and we like it that way here.

Mountain Swell offers Surf Photography / Ski Photography services and a range of Adventure Tours with both Local and Native English speaking guides
