Skiing in Japan
Japan’s outstanding success as a ski destination can be summed up in one simple word – snow!
You really have to ski it to believe it. Japan is certainly a vibrant and culturally diverse country with iconic scenery, but for skiers looking for amazing powder snow conditions, then quality and indeed quantity of snow is the main reason you want to travel here. Niseko boasts an average of over 50 feet of the white stuff every winter, dumped down from massive Siberian low-pressure systems. Skiing waist-deep powder here is not a ski movie myth; it’s a way of life!
