Luxury Ski Holidays Japan
Although it is around the same size as the British Isles, Japan has hundreds of luxury ski resorts for skiers to enjoy. With snow falling regularly all winter, you can be sure of excellent snow conditions during your ski holiday, with 13 main ski areas to discover between the Hokkaido (North Island) and Honshu (Main Island). After a day in the powder, dine in a traditional Japanese restaurant, relax in one of many natural hot spring onsens or retire to your luxury Japanese ski chalet.
Japan’s night skiing gives guests the opportunity to try a variety of other activities during the day including snowmobiling and dog sledding, as well as snow rafting and reindeer rides.
On Hokkaido, Niseko is one of the most popular ski areas, comprising four interlinked resorts - Grand Hirafu, Hanazono, Niseko Village and An’nupuri. Niseko provides some of the best restaurants of any ski town and is famed for its wide-open powder bowls and tree runs. Other popular resorts on Hokkaido include family-friendly Furano, powder central Rusutsu and adventure playground Tomamu.
One of the largest ski areas in Japan is on the main island of Honshu: Shiga Kogen is made up of 21 ski resorts incorporating 19 interlinked ski areas, beginner slopes, long cruisers, tricky moguls and powder bowls. Host to the 1998 Winter Olympics, Hakuba is another expansive region to be enjoyed consisting of 11 ski resorts and an incredible variety of terrain.
