Hokkaido boasts many awesome places for skiing, including Niseko and Tomamu. Niseko comprises five resorts, of which the biggest is the Grand Hirafu. The Grand Hirafu enables outdoor enthusiasts to immerse themselves totally in nature as they can ski along the front side of Mount Yotei!

Tomamu, on the other hand, will fulfill expert skiers' desire to challenge themselves as it showcases an "Experts Only Powder Area" - an exclusive area that can only be accessed by a chairlift and allows them to test out their skills on more challenging terrain!

2) Nagano Prefecture

Not to be outdone is Nagano Prefecture, which offers two magnificent areas for skiing: Nozawa Onsen and Hakuba. Onsen and skiing buffs will be thrilled to find out that they can indulge in both activities to their heart's content at Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort. Showcasing 40 ski slopes that are tailored to the needs of amateurs and professionals alike, it enables users to soothe their aching muscles after a hard day of skiing.

And what better place to ski than Hakuba, the world-renowned site for the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics? Make use of the Hakuba Ski Jumping Stadium and feel like you are an Olympic athlete!

3) Niigata Prefecture

If you only have a short period of time in Japan and don't really wish to venture too far out of Tokyo, Niigata is your answer.

In fact, it has its own shinkansen station, so you can ski for a few hours and head back to Tokyo to resume your shopping within one day!
