Tazawako review by enzanB
I have spent time there in December & in January from time to time. YH has half price lift tickets and more food than you can digest.

Got lucky I think, but it snowed 30+cm every night so powder is available until noon everyday.

No lift lines at all. And if it is not snowing, the view of the lake is beautiful.
Date visited: From December, 2004
Snow condition on visit: Fresh powder daily
Things I liked: Cheap lift tickets, few people
Things I didn't like: Wind from west blows straight into you
