  • Best skyplace of Japan...beautiful in summer..Japanese, Australian,New zeland and Australian tourist enjoys this beautiful mountains.
  • Amazing mountains. Ski resort all over the place. Superbs roads ideal for cycling when it is too hot in the lower land. The view is spectacular. Great variety of flowers and birds. Plenty of onsen in the area makes it an ideal base for winter or summer. Highly recommended!
  • Amazing skiing!
  • One of the biggest ski resorts in Japan with lots of venues for different levels and restaurants. One must make several trips before fully enjoy it all.
  • IT'S JAPAN'S BIGGEST SKI AREA!! Do I need to say more. Ok, I will. I saw snow monkeys from the chairlift; and one was chilling in the parking lot (picture attached). This place is so huge, you will drive along (and occasionally under) the slopes for nearly a half an hour from end to end. Bombing the runs at full speed, it will take you almost your entire day to make it from one end to the other and back to your car. There is some unusual terrain to be found here: runs built on man-made wooden corkscrewing catwalks, ski runs through tunnels (with stoplights), chairlifts over a road, awesome slackcountry (cutting the corners on cattracks), not to mention Nagano's epic powder. Oh yeah, there's an Olympic run as well. You can come here for powder or groomers, however it''s not a backcountry place. It's size meant that on the last day of my season, in April, on the last run to the car, I was hitting untouched knee deep powder as the gondola closed. Now that's saying something!
