Kyoto Hirogawara review by topherwillis
A one run a minute kind of place. The only reason you would go would be if you were living around Kyoto, and had three or four hours of time to kill, and a hard case of snow withdraw.

Good place to take the kids and teach them how to turn and stop. There are some banked ares on the top of the run to launch off of, and the bottom section of the run is banked on both sides making it into a fun natural halfpipe. One rail and a small box located at the bottom of the run. The kickers are a little dangerous as they are basically toss you into the flats at the bottom of the hill. You can get there by bus, but you can get better snow elsewhere in less time and with less hassle over in Shiga.

Best suited for those with cars or access to a car.
