Welcome to snow country! Less than an hour north of Nagano City, Myokokogen boasts more than 19 meters of snow annually—and everything from easy beginner runs to steep slopes where you can enjoy the deeps. Add cozy accommodations, great local foods, soothing hot springs, rich history (founded in the 1930s, Myokokogen is one of the oldest established ski areas in the world), the unspoiled nature of Myoko National Park and easy access to interesting cultural side trips, and you have the ideal location to enjoy a total Japan ski experience.
With three distinctive areas spread across the base of beautiful Mt. Myoko, Myokokogen has something for every skier, from adventurous individual to couples looking for a romantic getaway, or families with children who need to satisfy many different needs (including daycare facilities). Call on a local guide for snowshoeing and light skiing that even beginners will enjoy, or day-long tours to local peaks.
Or simply stroll along snow-walled streets and enjoy snowfalls like you’re unlikely to experience anywhere else in the world. When you’re done with the outside fun, take a long, soothing dip in any of the countless hot springs—the ideal treatment for ski-weary legs! Then enjoy a selection of Japanese and Western meals—don’t forget the local soba noodles and native mountain vegetables, served in a wide array of unforgettable dishes.
No wonder it’s consistently rated as one of the most beautiful ski areas in Japan.
