Managing Director

"NOASOBI" to the world. 

Since 1958 Snow Peak has been making outdoor equipment for the outdoor enthusiast. We specialise in luxury family camping products and lightweight backpacking equipment. At the 60th anniversary of our founding, we returned to the fact that the essential significance of Snow Peak's existence is to continue to provide the life value to our customers. We believe that the culture that connects people and nature, which Snow Peak has cultivated, can restore the everyday "richness" that we sacrificed in exchange for the convenience of a modern city. Every year we hold a number of camping events called, Snow Peak Way, in a number of cities in Japan, Korea and USA. These extremely popular events contribute to creating a culture of Snow Peak users globally.
