    We’ve been renting and outfitting at Rhythm Hakuba and Niseko for the past 4 years. After renting at several resorts, we appreciate the superior gear and friendly advice on offer at Rhythm, and the coffee and hot chocolate stop has also become a welcome family ritual. My son moved from skiing to snowboarding this year and Rhythm made that a smooth transition as well. We just had a great spring week in Hakuba (last year it was Niseko) and we couldn’t do it without Rhythm. Thanks and see you next year.

    They delivered to the accommodation one day in advance so everything was settled in the morning and prepared for a perfect start!
    With a company of 4 adults and 4 children there were a lot of changes needed to be done both boots and skis! Every time they arrived within 20 minutes after the phone call and were extremely polite and service minded! Couldn’t ask for more!

    Rhythm is guaranteed the best ski/snowboard rental shop is the best I have been to in the entire world. They are extremely hospitable and will help you with any question you may have. If you do not rent from this place you have made a massive mistake as it is a life changing experience.

    Not just a ski shop! Rhythm is a home. The comfort feel when you walk under the big vibrant red “Rythm” sign at the end of a long day rivals that of an emotional underpass of a return to your childhood house for mother’s cooking. From restaurant recommendations, to premium ski rental, to 24 hr free parking service, the rhythm concierge goes to inconceivable lengths to assure a perfect niseko experience. Your not just renting skis when you go to rhythm, your renting a family life. Rhythm for president!

    Rhythm is listed as a “ski shop” but it much more resembles a new age post-capitalistic ski lifestyle brand. Sure the premium armada and black crow skis is what brings you in but the bulldog, coffee and company is what makes you stay.

    Need a local Izakaya recommendation? Not a problem. Take a hard fall on the mountain and need your leg massaged at the end of the day? Light work. Miss your flight back to Tokyo and need a lift? Tall task but can be done.

    Who was there for me when my mother’s severe dementia took a turn for the worst? Rhythm. Who was able to pull the plug on her respirator when the big decision needed to be made? You guessed it - rhythm. Rhythm was the best man at my wedding and will surely help rear my children as we grow harmoniously into old age. To say rhythm is the reason I’m able to get out of bed in the morning after a somber cold shower and a long look into the mirror would be an understatement. Frankly, I just don’t know what I’d do without them.

    We booked 2 full day classes on our recent trip to Niseko.

    A huge thank you to Matt and Tomoko for their excellent instructing as they were able to push us to our limits as well as finesse our technique. Also thanks Matt for the lunch time recommendation at King bell hut!

    The whole family rented their ski equipment at Rental Shop Yoshi. Excellent staff attention for the fitting, very good quality equipment and lowest cost in Hirafu.
    Some of the family had three hour ski lessons over four days with one of the instructors....absolutely outstanding, thank you Christian you are a wonderful instructor for young and old.
    Yoshi, the owner, is a gentleman and so keen to please.
    Spend you money on this local Japanese business, you will not be dissatisfied.
    Highly recommended.
