- The last day of winter and the change of the seasons is becoming apparent. Although some heavy snowfalls are incoming for the weekend, the general trend is towards a greater proportion of sunny days, spring like snow and less cold influxes of NW wind and snow. Such as today where we have warm sunshine and light winds greeting skiers and boarders over a deep and full snowpack. It will be good riding today with excellent on piste conditions that will softened through the day. Off piste will have a similar if not more variable behaviour, but this is by no means a call to let your guard down. ...

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
