Ski Japan, Myoko Kogen

8 Days, from AU $2,232

Japan is blessed with some of the world's best skiing, and famed for reliable powder snow. Combine perfect snow, relaxing hot spring onsens, tantalising food washed down with warm sake or a cold Sapporo, with the amazing cultural intrigues of Japan, and it's easy to see why so many travellers return time and again.

Enjoy your holiday at one of Japan's famous, yet affordable, ski resorts, or combine with a personalised trip around Japan to make the most of your trip. Our Asia Travel experts can organise everything from start to end, including flights, or simply your snow resort experience.

Suggested Itinerary

 

Myoko Kogen on the island of Honshu is a powder lovers paradise. Consisting of 4 main ski areas, Myoko Kogen receives one of the heaviest snowfalls in Japan, an average of over 13 metres annually! The ski terrain has something for everyone from gentle, beginner slopes through intermediate and advanced, with 1,124 metres of vertical elevation and the longest run being 8.5km. The town of Akakura sits at the base of Mt Myoko, here there are a good variety of restaurants and bars as well as a convenience store.

Rising above Akakura are the ski resorts of Akakura Onsen and Akakura Kanko. A short bus trip provides access to Ikenotaira Onsen and Myoko Suginohara. All these resorts can be accessed on the Big 4 all mountain pass, they are well connected by shuttle bus. Myoko Kogen is easily accessed from Tokyo via Nagano.

Additionally, for the adventurous and powder hungry the nearby Seki Onsen resort is a favourite because of its steep and deep runs, well worth the little extra cost and effort involved.
