Overview
More
Based in Japan, Rhythm Japan is a ski and snowboard retail and rental store that takes pride in offering customers excellent service along with the latest in quality snow sports equipment. Our staff know the equipment as well as they know the mountains so those visiting the store can be confident they're getting the right advice. Rhythm Japan has locations in Niseko and Hakuba, resorts that are renowned for their dry snow conditions. We provide superior equipment at competitive prices so our customers can ride the powder with confidence. Our stores are big and our range is second to none. We offer quick and comprehensive service and always aim to get customers on the mountain as fast as possible. In summer, Rhythm Japan Niseko turns in to Rhythm Cycles, offering a prompt and professional service to visiting cyclists and to the local Niseko cycling community. We pride ourselves on our new fleet of quality rental bikes, full service workshop and bike sales for cyclists of all levels.

Renting snow equipment or any kind of equipment has never been this easy and hassle free. They are so efficient. Call in to extend the rental or have it picked up at your place. No worries!!! Rhythm strives to make everything convenient for you.
