Fujiten Snow Resort review
Fujiten is a great place for beginners to enjoy a day on the slopes. I usually go here once a season for a relaxing time on the hill as it's not to far from my homebase near Izu.

On clear days there are decent views up to Mt. Fuji. Barring one or two small sections the runs are exclusively for beginners. I've only ever seen manmade snow at this resort although I suppose that it gets the occasional

Fujiten Snow Resort review by Woody80
We got on the Chou heading out of Hachioji (not spelled right) around 8 a.m. It only took an hour fifteen to get there with very little traffic.

They had one run open about 1 km long. Which was impressive to me since it was so warm out. Not much to keep you there after a few trips down the slope if your adavnced but well worth the 2000 yen to ride.

It's a great place for beginners or folks

Kamui Misaka review
As far as I know, Kamui is a chain sports facility/shop that has various artificial slopes throughout Japan. Misaka is no exception. Nestled in the bosom of low mountains/hills in Yamanashi, it's pretty much an artificial slope placed outdoors. Right next to the ski field there is said to be an indoor half-pipe, which I didn't know existed until I was on the bus heading home.

In early March, the artificial snow was barely holding and

Visited the resort on a family ski trip on a weekday, 12/27.

While the slopes were a bit icy, I thought that the management was doing a good job keeping snow on the runs this early in the season with the temperatures being as high as they have been. This is one of the closest places to Tokyo to ski and it is a very enjoyable place to visit. You are essentially in Mt. Fuji's shadow and this makes for

Wonderful find.

A small resort with a European feel. Great for children and families.

Mid level restaurant should set the standard for on piste catering in Japan

I'll be honest: my local slope Fujiten is a tiddly place compared with the likes of Hakuba and Niseko, (those names shouldn't even be rubbing shoulders in the same paragraph) but if you're nearby in Yamanashi or Shizuoka or even Tokyo, the place is worth a visit.

It's one of the nearest resorts to Tokyo in fact: The rows of license plates tell the story. Modest size aside, Fujiten has some attractive plus-points.

For one thing, the stunning backdrop of Mt
