So people say Japan has the best snow don't they? But then people say a lot of things ... well this time you can believe them! The powder is mind blowing.

Loving this beautiful hotel. Charming staff, lovely ambience and amazing steep deep powder on our first day outside the hotel door ( we lucked a big storm). Especially appreciate the gorgeous food. French and Japanese equally delish.

Staff were really friendly and helpful. Food was fantastic. Hotel has an Onsen on site - really great way to finish the day skiing. Catered well for westerners and locals. Skiing was fantastic. Okushiga kogen resort links up with other ski fields on the same ticket. We were there a week and didnt ski all the options.

It was a true winter wonderland. Not only the ski condition was super good (meaning powdery), it was not crowded at all. And ski in ski out is truly the best. Service at Okushiga Kogen is amazing.
