MYOKO KOGEN

If you are after an authentic Japanese experience and powder Myoko Kogen could be the choice for you. One of Japan's best-hidden secret, Myoko is relatively untouched by the Western market and is the perfect place for those seeking powder. Yet another fabulous Japanese resort that receives an annual snowfall of 13m (42ft) and definitely no shortage of snow. A free-riders paradise with plenty of tree skiing.

RECOMMENDATION

After a day on the mountain and mandatory during your stay at Myoko Kogen is a visit to an onsen or natural hot springs. There are several in the hotels or visit one of Myoko Kogen's seven hot springs Akakura Onsen, Shin-Akakura Onsen, Ikenotaira Onsen, Myoko Onsen, Suginosawa Onsen, Tsubame Onsen, and Seki Onsen.
