Visitor Reviews of Tazawako

torihada from United Kingdom writes:

Tazawako is a nice resort but is dependent on snow fall. Wide pistes, with some black runs (mogouled though). Tazawako is a great place to learn and with fresh snow it's good. Kids ski school is pretty good and, unlike some resorts, the kid's lift pass is included in the cost of the ski lesson. Lifts are pretty quick and queues are short or non existent. If you're an experienced boarder/skier a days visit is quite sufficient, and I don't recall a terrain park.

Fantastic views over Lake Tazawako and the Nyuto Onsen is nearby - some of the oldest Onsen in Japan and if you're at Tazawako they're a must.
