Ski Resorts in Japan

With 765 ski areas within the Land of the Rising Sun, there’s really no shortage of options when it comes to skiing and snowboarding in Japan. But we suggest you narrow your options to the two Olympic-level cities of Niseko (host of the 1972 Winter Games) and Nagano (host of the 1998 Winter Games). The latter is just about 60 miles outside of Tokyo, making a popular place for both daytrippers and destination skiers, while the former resides on Hokkaido, a northern island that received an average of over 500 inches of snow each year.
