If you are a skier or snowboarder and are into powder snow, then skiing in Japan is surely on your bucket list. With an average annual dump of up to 18 metres of the white stuff, incredibly light powder snow conditions and lots of tree skiing, Japan is a world-renowned powder destination.
For many, Japan being an amazing cultural destination to boot is just icing on the cake. For some, the insular nature of visiting a ski resort is not enough to appreciate or get a true sense of the vastness and impressiveness of Japanese culture. Tokyo however, is one place where culture and history do ring loud and clear. Luckily, it is quite easy to combine a Japan snow holiday with a bit of sightseeing by booking a stay in Tokyo either side of your Japan ski trip.
Tokyo has something to offer everyone. Whether you are into dining, shopping, nightlife, fashion, architecture, museums, culture, or history, the vastness of offerings in Tokyo is unbeatable. With a wide range of accommodation options in Niseko and Hakuba to suit any budget, it is a very worthwhile stop, which can transform your ordinary ski holiday to one that combines incredibly rich culture, history, and gastronomy. And so easy to do, since many people will fly in and out of either Narita or Haneda airports to get to Hakuba resort, or via these airports en-route to Sapporo New Chitose to get to Niseko. Both Tokyo Narita and Tokyo Haneda airports are well connected by public transportation to the centre of Tokyo, making it an easy place to visit for a day or two (or more!) before or after your resort stay.
With the ease of booking more tailor-made holidays these days, why not add a visit to Tokyo on either end of your Niseko or Hakuba ski package. Get in touch with us to enquire about booking your next stay.
