Not everyone is a skiing enthusiast, some just want to ski a little. For those who want mainly a Japanese winter holiday with a bit of ski on the side, then we can help there too. There are many ski resorts in Japan, not just the major ones. Not every family member is a skier so some trips require compromise. We often help clients in these situations where everyone's taste is a little different. If this sounds like your family you may want to contact us to help create a trip to suit all the family.
Niseko is a major attraction for many Aussie and Kiwi skiers. Famous for its powder snow and facilities it is one of the two major ski resorts which has the infrastructure to cater to the overseas market. For a ski package contact our ski team.
Hakuba is one of the other major ski resorts for many Aussie and Kiwi skiers. Located on the main island of Honshu it means it is easier to access from the major Tokyo airports of Narita and Haneda. For a ski package contact our ski team.
This traditional ski resort and hot spring town is nowadays becoming a major attraction for the overseas skier and is considered a major resort in its own right. The major draw card is the hot springs along with some great skiing and that fact that Nozawa give the feel of being in traditional Japan. This is a destination for those who are happy to have a Japanese flavour to their ski holiday. It is fairly easy to access from Tokyo but is not quite as easy as the 2 major resorts.

Furano is one of the other main ski resorts in the top island of Hokkaido. Located in the centre of the island it is owned by the Prince Hotel and is quite large for Japan however it is smaller than Niseko or Hakuba in size. One of the attractions about 1 hour from Furano if you want a break from the skiing is the Penguin walk in winter. For a ski package contact our ski team.
A smaller but increasingly popular ski resort in Hokkaido is Tomamu. Access to Tomamu from Chitose Airport is good with trains and buses both an option. Ski in and ski out accommodation options also exist. For many Australians who spend up to 2 weeks skiing in Japan this resort works in conjunction with a stay at another resort or works well for people who only want a few days of skiiing. For a package contact our ski team.
Shiga Kogen is the one of the largest ski resorts in Japan. Shigakogen Mountain Resort offers 58 lifts and the overall slope length is 83 km. For those wanting a good all rounder ski holiday then but want to avoid Hakuba and Niseko then Shiga Kogen might do the trick. For some they might know about Shiga Kogen due to the events at the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics. Shiga Kogen provides a large variety of hotel accommodation but is limited in apartment style options.
