  • 20 minutes side by side I have nowadays, lift tickets 30 minutes side by side, buying a ski gondola, barely caught. Fly me the key, seems to age. As a diehard skier, really nice. Crowded slopes and 60% is white. It's safe, inbound from China and Taiwan for sure, but it's very small and so, at the bottom of ski slopes on the go. Guelleh food in the cafeteria system, has excellent coffee and delicious. It's not okay! Snow got from the midst of a severe cold wave was the "snow (take barks and squeaks) singing" the was the best. 60 years or more would be discounted from your driver's license to!

Where to stay in Kutchan-cho

A commercial and touristic center, Kutchan-cho offers a good set of accommodations, primarily close to the train station. The choice remains at odds with the upmarket nature of the shopping and eating venues in town, with some simple hotels and backpacker hostels providing primarily budget stays. This is because most visitors opt to stay instead in Hirafu, just south of Kutchan-cho. There you'll find a whole host of ski resorts, hotels, hostels, and guesthouses.
