Skiing enthusiasts traveling in Japan should consider a trip to Hakuba-mura: tucked away in the Northern Alps, this village hosted several competitions during the Nagano 1998 Winter Olympics. With easy access from Tokyo, tourism in Hakuba-mura draws scores of visitors to its various ski resorts and over 200 trails. Thanks to a dry climate and copious snowfall during the year, Hakuba-mura boasts near-perfect conditions for winter sports, from snowboarding and skiing to sledding and snowmobiling. Numerous hot springs offer a chance to reinvigorate after a tiring day on the slopes, while plenty of bars and restaurants in the village provide entertainment and a wide variety of food choices.
