Less well known, however, is that only a short distance away are some 600+ ski resorts, boasting some of the world’s best champagne powder snow, challenging runs and amazing scenery.

Japan’s myriad of ski resorts are well serviced, uncrowded, and offer beautiful skiing across a variety of terrain. Tree runs, backcountry and guided tours further reward the most discerning deep powder enthusiast, with repeat runs on untracked snow often enjoyed well into the afternoon. Japan is made up of four main islands. The main island of Honshu is home to Japan’s major ski areas, with four resort towns of particular note. Shiga Kogen and Hakuba resorts in Nagano hosted events of the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics and are of world-class standard. These resorts are accessible by train or bus from Tokyo and are within easy reach of each other.

Shiga Kogen is one of the world’s largest ski resorts, whilst Hakuba offers Japan’s steepest ski runs. Myoko and the surrounding region offer almost endless powder skiing and snowboarding options. The area boasts some of the best skiing conditions in Asia, with an average base of four metres each year – all just a short trip from Tokyo. Nozawa Onsen is the perfect resort to visit to experience the charm of an old-time Japanese village, while still enjoying the best that Japanese skiing has to offer. The north island of Hokkaido is also very popular among Australian skiers, and has five outstanding ski resort areas: Niseko, Rusutsu, Furano, Tomamu and Kiroro.
