Our Philosophy

Evergreen Outdoor Center is a long-established, professional outdoor adventure company situated in the Northern Azumino area of the Japanese Northern Alps that provides outdoor experiential education programs for international schools, corporations, families and individuals within Japan and from abroad. It is our hope and vision that, through the programs that we at Evergreen Outdoor Center provide, each guest will return home with a new found love and respect for the natural world and the unique mountain culture of Northern Azumino communities that they visit during our safe and expert guidance.
