Osorakan Snow Park
恐羅漢スノーパーク
Akiota Town, Hiroshima
Submitted by timtak on 2nd March 2014
Great even on March 1st
We went to take the kids sledding. A long way to go I know but my wife was adamant.

We did not find a really good place to sled even the 5m height / 30m run at the left hand side of the children's play area (flat) in front of the restaurant by the second upper car park was enough for our three year old. And ramp into the same area from the direction of the top of the mountain

Remote place not many people had powder over my ears *)
My first visit to this place and had a wonderful time.

Access by car has two options. I didn't know about the new one and took the short one suggested by navi. It was one way road with few spots for cars meeting to get through. It was dangerous as there was a lot of snow and ice no protection on the side with cliffs so it was an adventure I wouldn't recommend to anyone with kids or unexperienced driver.

Megahira Onsen Megahira review by Jai
Megahira has good lift access to the slopes. Took my son on his first ski trip and the ski school was good and the bunny slope was great for practice.

It has snowed fresh and there was lots of powder making this a fun ski.

Too many boarders though, so if you are skiing then watch out for the beginners who seemed to be where the did not belong.

Although there is some choice in restaurants the food was terrible. All of

Megahira Onsen Megahira review by Justin
We started our weekend here, if your new then give up the idea of the bunny slope as it is too packed with parents guiding there little one's right in front of you. from the mid mountain is a good place to shake off the rust. but your guarenteed to dodge people sitting in the middle of the run or going the hole run side ways more than youd ever have to dodge a tree in the wild. This gets

Megahira Onsen Megahira review by snowbunny
I've been very pleased with the conditions at Megahira.

I've probably gone over 20 times to this resort. When there is fresh snowfall, the powder rivals Lake Tahoe. The artificial snow making is much better here than in the states, for instance Big Bear in California. It's a good place for all skill levels. There are lots of food options too and they're delicious. There is also a free foot onsen near the parking lot to

Geihoku Kokusai
芸北国際
Kita Hiroshima Town, Hiroshima
Submitted by andrewl on 1st October 2005
Review submitted by 'Lisa' before 2006
Geihoku has the advantage of being very easy to get to. The road is usually good and it's rare to have to put on chains. The down side to this is the snow. When it's good it's just OK, when it's bad it's really bad. They do have a good selection of tickets available at a reasonable price. The slopes have a tendancy to get a bit crowded (especially on Sunday), but overall if you're looking for a fun day

Geihoku Kokusai review by Mackall
Under new management in 2005, changes are to be expected, but from first glance, not in a good way.

Most visible is very poor restaurant service replacing excellent offerings from seasons past -- sparse menus, barely edible routine truck stop fare, or worse. Kids remarked not even any hot chocolate, most drink, etc. machines weren't operating, in-resort convenience store closed. Poor slope maintenance (the snow hoses were blowing all over the place, unrestrained, on several occasions), still, has

Megahira Onsen Megahira review by Fingers
Unusual but effective snow making allowed this resort to open early.

Board to skier ratio 9 to 1.

Has a new high speed quad which makes this a better destination than you might think.

Very nice spa with 45,000 year old petrified wood hot tubs for apres skiing. Low admission price for spa makes it a bargin.

Decent restaurant in Spa.

Museum on site.

Will go again

Osorakan Snow Park
Osorakan is famous for being half owned and operated by the Government of Japan (Kokuritsu Ski jyou) and one of the original ski areas in Hiroshima.

That said, it is old school as far as access, lifts (no high speed), main lodge and food as mentioned by a previous poster.

Osorakan has ONLY two saving graces. When the snow sucks everywhere else in Western Japan, because of little or no natural snow, you will find more of it here. Why?

Geihoku Kokusai review by fatgod
This is a good place to improve your technique if you are a goodish boarder. However, if you are high pushing on expert then you will probably manage to ride every run within half a day, no matter how big they say the place is. The only bonus will come from really easily available powder. Of course this is generally off piste so at your own risk.

If you are still beginning then you are likely to find this a hard

Osorakan Snow Park review by fatgod
I had a good time here, but... as the time progressed I became a little bit frustrated by the lack of quality in the facilities and in what is a really stupid layout for the runs.

I have never been to a resort that quite requires the amount of skating and even walking as is required here. Quite often you get off your lift and will have to skate a distance to get to the start of the piste or to

Geihoku Kokusai review by Ichiro
Geihoku Kokusai is advertised as the premere ski area within Hiroshima prefecture with Daisen its only rival in scale.

Good news first, larger(est?) mountain compared to Osorakan Ski Area, 191, Mizuho Highland (I know it's in Shimane Pref.) with high speed lifts abound within the boundries of Hiroshima Prefecture.

Access is pretty straight forward. Not as close to a interchange offramp as Shimane Pref. Mizuho Highland, then again not the death -defying one-way (really) drive up and down narrow road
