Sitting almost exactly in the center of the Japanese archipelago, Nagano is full of interesting sightseeing areas. Renowned resorts such as Hakuba, Nozawa Onsen and Karuizawa are all within Nagano’s prefectural borders. Popular among skiers, mountaineers and onsen aficionados, Nagano is a wonderful place to visit for its regal mountains, rich cultural history, fine architecture and cuisine.
Nozawa Onsen is a charming winter ski resort and year-round onsen town, tucked into a picturesque corner of the eastern Japan Alps. Featuring beautiful old streets filled with historical onsen ryokan and bustling local shops, the village has a quintessential Japanese atmosphere and unique sense of tradition.
Nozawa Onsen ranks amongst the best ski resorts in Japan with an excellent course layout and a plethora of runs, offering satisfying skiing and snowboarding experiences for beginners and experts alike.
Hakuba is a village in the Japanese Alps, just outside the city of Nagano, host of the 1998 Winter Olympics. A winter sports hub, Hakuba encompasses mountain resorts with terrain for skiing, snowboarding and hiking.
The Hakuba Ski Jumping Stadium, built for the 1998 games, is at the base of the Happo-one resort. Hakuba village offers a lively après-ski scene and hot springs.
For more than 70 years, Hakuba has been providing skiers, boarders and outdoor enthusiasts the ideal conditions for enjoying a superlative winter sports experience. Over 200 different trails, exceptional powder and some of the longest vertical skiing in Japan are just a few of the reasons why Hakuba has earned its reputation as a prime destination for skiers and boarders of all levels.

You should definitely book your rentals in advance to ensure your ideal rental equipment is available. Peak season is extremely busy and rentals can sell out quickly.

We highly recommend booking your lessons before the trip – Lessons book out months in advance for peak season, and even during the quieter periods you should pre-book so that the lesson can fit in smoothly to your holiday schedule.
