Our Favorite Japan Ski Chalet Destinations

Japan is considered one of the best ski destinations in the world. With slopes for beginners and experts alike, beautiful scenery of the Japanese Alps, and impeccable hospitality and cuisine, it’s hard not to see why. Here are some of our favorite chalet destinations in Japan:

Niseko, Hokkaido

Niseko is arguably Japan's best-known ski destination, often called the "powder capital of the world." The entire Niseko area is extremely popular with both local and international tourists and is very English-friendly.
Niseko Ski Resort offers skiing and snowboarding for all ability levels, with a variety of groomed trails as well as off-piste trails where you can take advantage of the area's legendary powder snow. Niseko receives up to 15 meters of snowfall each winter, providing some of the finest powder in the world.
The village of Hirafu at the base of the Niseko resort is a highlight, offering plenty of après-ski activities. There are many shops, restaurants serving international and Japanese cuisine, bars, and an active nightlife scene.

Rusutsu, Hokkaido

Blessed with heavy snowfall, Rusutsu is a great option for a Hokkaido getaway that offers less crowded slopes compared to Niseko. Only a 30-minute drive away from Niseko, Rusutsu makes a good choice for a day trip or two to explore different trails.
Rusutsu has well-groomed ski runs that are ideal for beginner and intermediate riders. Powderhounds will appreciate the untouched tree runs and glade paths filled with freshly fallen snow.

Hakuba Valley, Nagano

Hakuba Valley, a sprawling ski region in the Japanese Alps, comprises ten snow resorts. With abundant snowfall and stunning scenery, it offers a relaxing getaway where visitors can easily move between resorts to make the most of the diverse area. Numerous hot springs dotted around the valley provide a great place to unwind after a day on the slopes. Hakuba is also very welcoming to international visitors and popular with English speakers.
Hakuba Valley is under a three-hour trip from central Tokyo via shinkansen bullet train and bus. A 90-minute shinkansen ride gets you to Nagano Station, then about an hour on the bus takes you directly into Hakuba.

Nozawa Onsen, Nagano

As its name suggests, Nozawa Onsen was originally a hot spring town before it became a renowned ski destination. After a fun day on the slopes, you can unwind by soaking in one of the 13 free public bathhouses in the village.
The snow resort is extremely family-friendly and offers varied terrain for all skill levels. There's just one main ski area in Nozawa but it's quite large, offering something for everyone to enjoy. The village itself has the quintessential Japanese charm, but remains English-friendly.
Take a two-hour bullet train ride from Tokyo and stop at Iiyama Station, where you can transfer to a shuttle bus that will take you 20 to 25 minutes to reach Nozawa Onsen village.

Shiga Kogen, Nagano

Few places in Japan allow for skiing and seeing cherry blossoms at the same time, but Shiga Kogen is an exception. The long ski season in Shiga Kogen starts from mid-November and lasts through the end of May. Even better, Shiga Kogen is among the largest ski resorts in the country, providing access to 19 different ski areas using a single lift pass.
Spanning such a huge area, the resort offers trails suited to skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels. While the area lacks lavish accommodation, Shiga Kogen does provide the best selection of traditional Japanese ryokan guesthouses where you can experience Japan's friendly hospitality. It's also close to popular destinations like the Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park.

Best Time to Ski in Japan

The Japan ski season runs from December to April, with peak season in January and February. The slopes generally see the most fresh powder during this time, making it ideal for avid skiers. However, March and April often have better weather conditions with less wind and clouds.
