Plentiful Powder Snow
Ski and snowboard at the base of the Japanese Alps and take in the region’s beautiful nature and ancient traditions. Some of Japan’s most well-known ski destinations, such as the Hakuba Valley, Nozawa Onsen and Shiga Kogen, await you.
History and Culture
On a day off from the slopes, enrich your trip with a visit some of Nagano’s historic and cultural sights. Climb to the top of Matsumoto Castle, walk along the Nakasendo Trail, or snowshoe through Togakushi's ancient forests.
Soothing Hot Springs
After a long day on the slopes, relax the Japanese way with soothing hot spring baths.
Winter Activities and Events
Illuminations, fire festivals and fireworks festivals are just some of the events held throughout winter—lighting up even the coldest and darkest nights of the year. Experiencing a Japanese festival is an essential part of any trip to the country, and something that you certainly won’t want to miss!
