The Guide

Dan Mori is the perfect person to lead a surfing excursion through Japan. Not only is he fluent in Japanese, he has surfed and traveled through Japan for the last 20 years. Coupling his world class coaching abilities with fun, beginner friendly waves, this trip will not only improve one’s surfing abilities but also prove to be an enriching cultural experience.

Due to language barriers, most travelers experience Japan in a typical tour-bus setting. Cool if you’re into generic experiences, but if you’re a traveler seeking authenticity, you want to hang with locals and learn how they live. This is a rare opportunity to gain insight into one of surfing’s most welcoming and enthusiastic communities. We will be dining with

The Waves 

Beginning our journey in Tokyo, the first stop for surf is at Shonan, a sand bottom beach break that has playful and clean waves perfect for progressing one’s abilities.

The waters warm and the views from the line up stunning, boasting views of Mount Fuji in the distance. Shonan is home to  a bustling and colorful surf scene, but crowds are not competitive like they can be in California. Instead, the Japanese surfers are encouraging and love sharing their stoke with you.

Food and Drink 

The Japanese are diligent and innovative chefs who prepare traditional and modern flavors with tremendous attention to detail. If you’re fond of sushi and ramen, your palette will thank you for taking this trip. Because of Dan’s extensive connections in Japan, Fulcrum Travelers will have the opportunity to dine on local delicacies.

After a long day of surfing, there’s nothing quite like an ice-cold beer. Japan has some of the tastiest varieties. There’s a something for everyone when it comes to Japanese nightlife including clubs, bars, and even vending machines that disperse beer. It is legal to drink on the streets in Japan and while this trip is centrally focused on surfing, we’ll be sure to enjoy our time to the fullest extent.
