When is the best time to ski in Japan?

Here's when you should head over to Japan to catch (arguably) the best snow in the world.

Boasting enviable snowfields countrywide, the Japanese snow season is not one to miss, especially if you’re a keen skier. Want to know when that season is? We have the answer.

The best time to ski in Japan

December to April.

Why?

December to March is Japan’s peak ski season. The shoulder season is in November and April.


Overview

Japan’s snow season runs from mid-December to mid-April and features dry weather and lots of powder. Some of Japan’s more popular snow resorts include Niseko, Hakuba, Furano, Nozawa Onsen and Shiga Kogen.

Japan is a popular destination for snow sports for visitors worldwide. To avoid peak prices and busy snowfields, steer clear during the Christmas holiday period (mid-late December). The shoulder months will typically provide you with the best deals and prices.
