A number of unique ski areas lie across the eastern base of majestic Mt. Myoko. There are endless ways to enjoy skiing here, from long, scenic, tree-lined slopes to challenging bump runs—and especailly deep, deep powder.
For those who want variety in their skiing, the interconnected Akakura Kanko Ski Resort (Akakan) and Akakura Onsen Ski Resort together provide 32 different courses for all levels. Ikenotaira Onsen Ski Resort provides both wide, gentle slopes and one of the best board and ski parks in Japan. Myoko’s Suginohara Ski Resort has everything from steep bump runs and open slopes to Japan’s longest run—a full 8.5 km in length. Seki Onsen Resort is known for its all-access powder, especially among snowboarders, while Myoko Ski Park Resort and Kyukamura Myoko Ski Resort are great for families who prefer more leisure skiing. Myoko also boasts a number of ski schools with English-language skills to help you improve your skiing, or to get out into the beautiful backcountry of the area.
All the ski areas allow full access to snowboarders, with terrain parks for those who live for the challenge of winter sports. Myoko is a paradise for winter sports lovers.
