Feel free to follow favy!
Niseko Ski Resort (Hokkaido)
Niseko is a town in Hokkaido, Japan with a beautiful view near the Mount Yotei. Niseko has an even share of slopes that suit everyone whether you are an expert or a beginner. You can have a walk around Niseko village after skiing. Take a good rest at the onsen (Japanese hot spring) and have a look at the indigenous arts that retell the story of the community in Hokkaido. Access to the area is by flight from Tokyo to Chitose Airport. From the airport, it's a 2.5-hour ride with a public transport.
Asahidake Ski Resort (Hokkaido)
Asahidake is on one of the popular volcanoes located in Mount Asahi, Daisetsuzan National Park. Asahidake is further away from the ocean, unlike Niseko, and the view is magnificent. The terrain here is for extreme seekers from advanced to expert level. Alpine and tree skiing fans should not miss this gem. You can too enjoy the onsen at the village. Travelling there is either by car or bus from the Asahikawa Airport. Also, if you are doing a ski marathon, why not take a ride from Furano Ski Resort.
Hakkoda Ski Resort (Aomori)
Hakkoda ski resort is located in Aomori. Beware of the 'Snow Monsters' that will scare you off. The terrain is good for skiers from beginner to expert level. You can visit the Nebuta House Wa Rasse (Nebuta Museum) within a 1-minute walk from JR Aomori station. Also, the breathtaking night view of Hirosaki castle and Saisho-in Gojuno Tou Pagoda is worth it. Get to Hakkoba by JR bus bound for Lake Towada for approximately an hour from Shin-Aomori or Aomori. To cut off the hassle, you can reach the ski resort from Aomori Airport with a taxi for 45 minutes.
Mt.Tanigawadake Tenjindaira Ski Resort (Gunma)
Tenjindaira ski resort is located in Mount Tanigawa deep in the Joetsu National Park. The terrain is rather challenging, even though it is beginners friendly. The Nishi Kurosawa is one of the main lines and called as the Tenjin Bowling Alley or Avalanche Gully due to the avalanches. Ten-ichi Museum is open to Japanese art enthusiasts with collections of top works of world masters including Rodin, Renoir, and Picasso. Since Gunma prefecture is close-by Tokyo, you can easily access it from Tokyo station within 60 minutes.
Hakuba Ski Resort (Nagano)
Hakuba ski resort is located in the Japanese Alps that attract a huge crowd of visitors every year. It has a good view and you can spend a long day there with good company. The resort is somewhat strict for tree skiing (going off the main path), other than that it has an amazing fall-line. The ski resorts and the villages are English-speaker friendly, so it will be fine if you cannot speak any Japanese. It is also a great place for sightseeing as well. Hakuba is also relatively easy to access from Tokyo station or the airport via shinkansen or bus.
It is never too late to plan a ski trip. Equipment rental is available at the resorts. Check out the other ski resorts for winter in the link below.
