Snow Park Oze Tokura review
Nice runs that keep you having fun all the day long, powder lines, small but well-maintained park make Oze Tokura one of my favorite resorts for a one-day trip.

Niseko Annupuri Kokusai review
The powder at niseko is incredible but especially the untouched village of Annupuri.

It is next to Niseko village (Higashiyama) and it is brilliant. Make sure you get some fat skis since there is so much snow. Annupuri has great back bwols but don't touch them as an amateur or you might find yourself struggling to get through it.

Hoshino Resort Tomamu review by Noie
First trip of the winter and the whole group was very happy with everything, flight from Tokyo then just over an hour on the train, bus was waiting for us at the station and we were in our room inside 15 minutes.

Lifts operating 900-1600 first day it snowed heavy all day. Website said 40cm and we were given the option to refund at no cost, so glad we did not.

We saw maybe 20 people the first day, over 13
