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.
