About Myoko Kogen
With a whopping 14 metres of snow every season, Myoko Kogen is an uncrowded paradise that allows off-piste skiing (powder seekers rejoice!).
Myoko Kogen is one of Japan’s oldest ski areas and is made up of three separate resorts – Myoko Akakura, Myoko Suginohara and Ikenotaira. This area has some of the best tree skiing in Honshu and holds claim to the longest ski run in Japan, also known as ‘The Wall’. But don’t worry, if you’re not up for testing your legs just yet there are plenty of options for beginners and families as well.
At the base of the mountain you’ll find an authentic village steeped in Japanese tradition. Onsens (hot springs) are scattered throughout the village and izakayas (Japanese pubs) provide a great atmosphere for an après beer or sake. If you’re looking to combine off-piste powder skiing and culture, you can’t go past Myoko Kogen.
Myoko Kogen is a charming and rustic town offering accommodation options that range from traditional Japanese ryokans (guesthouses) to deluxe ski-in/ski-out hotels. The majority of properties are slope side or a short walk from the lifts and include their own private onsens (hot springs).
