Eyeball surf report
  1. eyeball reporter The rain that was forecast for last night has seemed to of missed us here in Nozawa Onsen and instead we have received the lightest dusting of snow in the village and 5cm up top. Good news, the skiing and boarding today will be better than expected. Looks like today the freezing level will gradually decline, currently sitting at 1200 meters, to around 200 meters.

Visitor Reviews of Kagura


Daz from Japan writes:

Kagura is an excellent ski field. Combined with the slopes of Tashiro and Mitsumata, this resort is big. At the very top, some 1800 metres above sea level, the snow is some of the best around. There is accessible BC to suffice the more adventurous rider and plenty of pisted action for everyone else. This is one of the most easily accessed resorts from Tokyo and as a result can be crowded, especially in early and late season when everywhere else is closed, but if you utilise the Tashiro area you can find your powder stashes fairly easily. This area is also connected to the Naeba resort by a giant gondola, you have to pay extra to use the Naeba resort but when taken into account this gives one of the widest range of terrain available. If you are living in Tokyo it's cheap and easy to get to and has the powder and trees to make sure that you won't regret going
