Any idea for snowboard destination?
What's the best ski resort in Japan that is accessible by bus or train? I have been to Nagano. Any other recommendations?
I'm fond of traveling. It means a lot to me; falling in love with people, food, language and culture.
I would recommend Niigata Yuzawa's GALA. I have been there once, and the snow was amazing. The shinkansen reaches all the way there as well. The ryokan we stayed at was really nice too, with free bus that took us to the ski resort! With the recent snowfall, I am sure you will love the snow there!0
Also recommend Gala Yuzawa for convenience, they have a seasonal shinkansen stop which makes it ultra easy from Tokyo - you can be there in about 80 minutes.0
Check out Gifu!0
There are also some quality resorts around the Myoko Kogen area. You'd have to head to Myoko Kogen station and then catch the resort's shuttle bus to complete the journey.0
@JapanRamen I have heard this place from my friend too. So definitely I'll count this in for my top 3 options. Thanks for the help!0
Just as an update on this, one of my friends went to Gala Yuzawa just last week and he said it's the quietest he's ever seen it - he's born and raised in Niigata, so he skis there just about every year. Worth a visit if you want the place almost to yourself - if you can plan a mid-week visit that's probably your best bet!0
I like Hakuba.0
