Akakura Onsen review
I've been to Akakura a few times and on the whole I've had some really good times.

The old adage that any resort is good if there's enough snow is particularly true about this place as each time I've been here when it hasnt been snowing or hasnt dumped have been pretty lame.

I'd defo recommend it for beginners though as none of the runs are that steep. And if you're looking for good pow runs head on

NASPA Ski Garden review by marnix
If you are looking for powder go somewhere else (although you can find it here very long as no one else bothers).

There are 3 lines but all are shortand not really challenging.

This is really a beginning family oriented resort.

They have a nice mogul run for beginning mogul skiers

There are some great lines to ski here.

Even more if you want to hike (haven't tried it and don't know what the patrollers will say/do).\r\n\r\nBut also within the resort nice powder runs on the top half.

The bottom half are cruisers although skier rightside of the mountain can get busy

Akakura Onsen review
It is a huge resort with so many lifts and runs that it never seemed that crowded, even on a Sunday.

We never waited in the lift lines at all. Unfortunately it warmed up and poured with rain on the first day which created icy runs on the second day and there was no powder to be had anywhere.

Nevertheless we had a great day as the snow softened up later on the second day.

Well, I have never been there in winter, but I plan to.

My friends and I went to the Fuji Rock Festival in late July this year and the mountain looks really good. And quite convenient from the Tokyo region too.

Looks like there's lots of runs and lifts all over the place. Looking forward to giving it a look hopefully in December

Kandatsu Kogen review by marnix
Great skiing but make sure you come early (low altitude). Another thing is try to stay away from the patrollers. With a minimum of hiking there is some challenging terrain with nice drops and good tree skiing possible.

If the powder is over there is always the park. Good big jumps and a number of slides. I like it
