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. To learn more about the resorts or to request extra information, please talk with one of our Asia Travel Experts.

"Awesome snow trip. With the wacky encounters, incredible customer service and first class attitude of the Japanese people, the amazing powder snow, and fantastic accommodation at the Aqua Alpine hotel in Hakuba, we'll be back for our next old boys trip! Highly recommended." — Glen O'Connor, Sydney, NSW, January 2011
