We avoid using additives, preservatives and MSG wherever possible.

    We endeavour to support the local economy and community by using local businesses and restaurants. We also prepare meals in our own kitchen to ensure our campers’ food is fresh with minimal carbon footprint as possible.

    Optional Transport

    Optional Transportation between Shinjuku and Hakuba

    To make transport between Hakuba and Tokyo easy, our team offers an optional pick up and drop off service at Shinjuku station, where your child and Evergreen Staff make the train journey together. We usually use the Limited Express Azusa train which goes directly between Shinjuku and Hakuba.

    Our office staff are also on hand to make the ticket purchase and provide you with all the transportation details.

    Our Commitment To The Environment

    • We try not to use air conditioning in our offices or in our vehicles while driving.
    • We plant trees to replace air conditioners and work to improve ventilation. 
    • We do not consume unnecessary electricity.
    • We use compost.
    • Recycling is a big part of our company culture.

    Our efforts may seem small, but small changes on a large scale can make huge changes on industry and on our environment. We share our ideology with our staff, and encourage them to be forward thinking towards their own environmental foot-print. We would like to think that our seasonal staff return to their home countries with a more open mind set and adjust their habits to protect our planet whenever possible.
