The “GALA Yuzawa Snow Resort” has excellent accessibility! It’s only 1 hour 15 minutes from Tokyo, with direct access to the station!

Among all of the available ski resorts in Japan, we would like to recommend “GALA Yuzawa Snow Resort,” an exceptionally easy-to-access ski resort that is only 1 hour and 15 minutes from Tokyo. The facility is, of course, a great place to ski or snowboard, but it also offers attractions that anyone can enjoy, such as beginner-friendly snow parks and snow-play corners, as well as sledding slopes. As the resort is not near any large city centers, once guests arrive by train or Shinkansen, the primary mode of travel is by bus. However, the GALA Yuzawa Snow Resort has direct access to a Shinkansen station, which makes it a very convenient access point for travelers!

Naeba Ski Resort

Naeba Ski Resort is located in Yuzawa, a town in Niigata Prefecture’s Minamiuonuma District.
The resort is operated by Prince Hotel, and there is a conveniently located hotel next to the facility.
There are 7 beginner courses, 6 intermediate courses, and 6 advanced courses. Naeba Ski Resort is a popular place for skiers every year!

Mount Racey (Ski Area)

Mount Racey is a ski area located just in front of the JR Yubari Station, or about an hour away from the New Chitose Airport. The ski resort is packed with people enjoying skiing and snowboarding in the winter months!
Mount Racey also features a hotel with excellent access to the ski area, making it a convenient lodging for skiers with lots of luggage.
