Nagano Ski Safari
This sample itinerary is just our suggestion of how you could divide your time between Nagano’s best ski areas and attractions.
Touchdown in Tokyo and travel to the Hakuba Valley via bullet train.
Spend up to 4 days exploring Honshu’s largest ski area, travelling between local resorts via shuttles. The main resort of Happo-One makes the best base but our favourite places for day trips are Tsugaike, Hakuba47 and Goryu.
Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park - Take a day out to see these red-faced macaques bathing in hot springs. For the best experience, a full day tour also includes Zenkoji Temple and lunch.
Transfer 2 hours to Shiga Kogen. Shiga Kogen is actually the largest ski area in Japan, made up of 19 interlinked ski resorts - though the links between some can be tricky with a short uphill side step on skis or unstrapping a board to walk a short distance. As one of the highest resorts in Japan the snow remains light late into the season.
Transfer 2 hours to Nozawa Onsen, Japan’s oldest ski resort famous for its centuries-old onsens (hot springs) and annual Fire Festival (February) as it is for its long, cruisey ski slopes.
