The Adventure of a Lifetime: Japan, Skiing and You


Sick of the constant go to work, go home, sleep and repeat cycle? Well, now is the time to push away those blues and head on an adventure of a lifetime.

No, I am not talking about your typical sunny Bali or tropical Fiji…I am talking about a ski holiday in Japan. Regardless of your experiences, a skiing holiday in Japan will provide you with the perfect mix of both adrenalin and relaxation which you have been craving.

Whether you want to ski, dine, shop, or have a drink and relax, here are the four things you need to know about skiing in Japan in order to have a good time.

Getting hot in cool weather

Firstly, you must attend the Japanese hot springs. Yes, you will be naked and out of your comfort zone, but once you enter into one of the hot thermal springs all regrets will soon fade. This is the definition of relaxation and is accessible at most of the ski resorts in Japan.

It won’t cost you an arm and a leg

If you are worried about the price, it is actually cheaper than you think. In fact, it is less expensive to ski in Japan than Australia, North America or Europe and you can find yourself eating and drinking at the ski resorts for less than £10 a day – bargain!


Ski resorts in Japan have an abundance of attractions to keep you entertained. From the steaming hot springs, to the ski runs available at your door, resorts are the perfect place to choose for your winter ski holiday. Plus, there are plenty of shopping sites and other relaxing activities if you ever feel like taking a break from the slopes.

Experience the culture

With thousands of tourists heading to the Japanese ski resorts, you can easily lose sight of the Japanese culture. Leave the beer at home, and infuse yourself in the wonderful attractions Japan has to offer. There are around 500 ski resorts to choose from in Japan – it is easy to stay clear of overseas influence.

However, if you choose to stay at a resort remote away from the popular tourist attraction of Hokkaido, you must remember that English is not a prominent language in Japan and you may find yourself lost for words.

The slopes are waiting…so go ahead and travel to Japan, because in no time, everyone in your office will envy the way you broke your everyday cycle.
