By going to the remote and almost untouched village of Myoko, this is truly the Japan ski trip of a lifetime. It will be easy to slow down and enjoy the traditional and delicious food, the unique Japanese culture, and unwind after a big day on the hill with the good company that you meet.
With its rare beauty and unique culture, there’s no wonder why Myoko, Japan continues to be one of our favorite ski trips to Japan. Myoko is a quaint village located in the heart of the Japanese Alps and is a powder seeker’s dream. It’s hard to come by a place like Myoko where the snow falls hard and fast, leaving skiers with several feet of fresh powder by morning. In fact, year after year, it continues to be one of the snowiest places on Earth. Since this small village is still fairly undiscovered, crowds are minimal. With both Akakura Onsen’s and Akakura Kanko’s lifts a few minutes walk from the Morino Lodge, and one of the main shuttle bus hubs right outside the front door, you've got easy access to all the resorts in the Myoko valley. Unlike Hakuba, Myoko consists of only two streets and has an intimate, peaceful atmosphere. Its roads contain only a few restaurants, bars and quirky shops, giving visitors a very authentic and traditional Japanese mountain experience that is often hard to come by in larger towns. This Japan ski package offers an atmosphere that makes it easy to slow down and enjoy the traditional and delicious food, the unique Japanese culture, and unwind after a big day on the hill with the good company that you meet.
It was fantastic! Loved the group of people, loved the trip. Loved the flexibility we had to take advantage of the good snow and ride for 4 days straight. It was a great experience and I'd definitely do it again.
I had the pleasure of dining and skiing with Philip during the trip. He is a very genuine guy with a penchant for problem solving. He saved 2 pairs of ski boots from being stranded in Myoko in the drying room among other things. I also had the pleasure of skiing with Bryce which was quite a treat because he pushes hard to find the best terrain. It's exactly what I was looking for in a ski trip.
This was a fantastic trip! Everything I hoped for and wanted to do on this trip happened - skiing powder in the trees, great little Japanese restaurants, bluebird days, experiencing Tokyo....
