Japan is a place that has to be experienced to be truly appreciated. With a reputation for having the driest powder in the world, and a snow season beginning as early as November and lasting into May, Japan is a world class destination for Skiers and snowboarders.
Japan has world class skiing and snowboarding on offer, and some of the best powder snow you will find anywhere in the world, with mountains that cater for all abilities. There are more ski resorts per capita in Japan than any other country in the world with most of the resorts receiving between 10 - 18 metres of snow per season on average.
It is possible to include all your ski equipment in your resort package at reasonable costs but keep in mind if you have big feet you might need to bring your boots from home.
