Awesome place. Slopes not that long but very good fun.

Lots of places off-piste for the adventurous snowboarder.

Towards the bottom, there is a fairly long and winding slope that is absolutely great for the "I feel the need for speed" racing duo snowboarders.... be careful though, this will take you back to the car park and the ropeway. ;-)

And for nonsmokers like myself, there is an excellent "non smoking" eating lodge right next to the main restaurant at the top of lift No. 4, with pretty decent grub

In all, not bad for a day out of Tokyo.
Snow condition on visit: Heavy Snow
Things I liked: Mad Powder yo !
Things I didn't like: Lifts can get a litte congested.
