At Akakura Onsen Ski Resort skiers can enjoy a 4 kilometre run from the top of the hill starting at 1,500 metres+. Or you can do whatever else fits your skills and interests: powder skiing, moguls, terrain parks, hit the trees or just fun family cruising. Slalom races are held in February and March, with entry available to anyone. There is a nice selection of restaurants scattered over the mountain and in the village. At the foot of the mountain is an onsen spa town where steam and the scent of hot springs fill the air; the perfect place to enjoy a traditional Japan apres experience. Below the resort a grand panorama spreads out, offering beautiful views of Lake Nojiri and, in the distance, the Sea of Japan.

Visitor Reviews of Akakura Onsen

Al Cochrane from Australia writes:

As with comments on Akakura Kanko - can really be thought of as 1 ski area which is very good. The village at Onsen is the best base for all the Myoko Kogen resorts with a level of friendliness not often seen today.
