About skiing in Japan

With hundreds of ski resorts across the country, Japan is the place in Asia to go for a ski holiday.

Being in the northern hemisphere, it's season runs in the opposite months to Australia and New Zealand, making it an ideal spot to go in the off season. (Plus, it's much closer and more affordable than going to Canada.)

It's main resort areas are Niseko, Hakuba, Nozawa Onsen, Furano and Shiga Kogen - all easily accessible from Tokyo or Sapporo airports by shuttle bus or train.

The best time to go skiing in Japan is between December and April, and with favourable weather, you might be able to schuss as early as November or into April.
