1 | Skiing in Japan

The Japan Alps of Central Honshu Snowboarder

When you think Japan, think beyond the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympics, for Japan has winter sports wrapped up as well. It’s known by sophisticated skiers as one of the world’s best skiing and snowboarding destinations, with more than 500 ski resorts. Say “Japan” to a well-traveled skier and they’ll respond, “powder!”. You’ll find the country’s highest mountains in The Japan Alps of Central Honshu, while the northern island of Hokkaido has the deepest and most regular snowfall. Hokkaido has an abundance of world-class ski resorts and seven interconnected ski areas, but Niseko, sometimes referred to as “the prince of powder”, is a favorite of international skiers, many of whom have second homes there. The town has excellent resorts, dining and nightlife and English is spoken everywhere. If you’re looking for a Hokkaido ski experience but want something quieter or a little more remote, take a look at Rusutsu, Tomamu, and Furano among others. The perfect counterbalance to a day of skiing – deep relaxation in an onsen, the traditional Japanese bath.
