If you have been reading the recent magazine reviews about the amazing powder and ski conditions in Japan and thinking "yes, skiing Japan is on my bucket list" this is the year to make that happen! Ski.com has added the resorts of Kiroro, Niesko, Rutsusu and Furano to our product line and I was lucky enough to visit all 4 resorts this spring! Japan is a beautiful country full of warm, welcoming people, the food is fantastic and the deep powder you read about is real! Most accommodations are slopeside or very close to the lifts, there are many non ski activities available and to relax in a true Japanese Onsen is a must-do experience. Make this the year to visit Japan!
