Discover the wide variety of ski slopes at the foot of majestic Mt. Myoko


Also known as Echigo Fuji, reflecting both the old name of Niigata and Japan's tallest mountain, Mt. Myoko is home to many ski areas. The two areas of Akakura are Akakura Kanko and Akakura Onsen they are the oldest in the area, as well as some of the oldest in the nation. Here are a vast number of groomed runs and tree runs, being ideal for skiers of all levels. The views of the valley and town below, as well as of Lake Nojiri and the Sea of Japan (even distant Sado Island when conditions are good) are breathtaking.
