Western Hokkaido

  • Niseko, the sanctum of JAPOW that made its name known to the world. According to observation data, Niseko has a stunning 80 to 100 days of snow during the winter ski season. At hardly any other place in Japan, let alone Hokkaido, can you ride on such fine powder that is reset every day. Rusutsu which is near by Niseko is the perfect place that has everything a resort in Japan could possibly offer.

Central Hokkaido

  • The area’s inland climate forms extra dry powder snow, which falls straight off your clothing and is easily blown away by the wind. This area, accessible from 3airports, is also home to large-scale resorts. In addition to major resorts, famous backcountry fields that together form the “Powder Belt,” such as Asahidake in the Taisetsu Mountain Range, are also located in central Hokkaido.
