Why Choose Japan for Skiing?

First and foremost you need snow – lots and lots of snow. Niseko is the worlds second snowiest ski resort with averages around 15 metres a year (Thredbo averages just over 2 metres).
Next you need good accommodation – Japan has a strong tourism industry as well as a strong cultural tradition of hospitality towards visitors. Japans strong service culture also means the customer is treated like a king/queen.
Skiing or snowboarding all day is one of the best ways to work up an appetite. So you'll need some delicious, filling food to satisfy a hungry stomach. Japan is one of the best places in the world for food. The list of delicious treats, taste morsels and lavish dishes could go on for days. Food is always a highlight of any trip to Japan.
Most ski resorts have two kinds of night life available bars for the skier to enjoy a couple of beers whilst meeting other skiers at the end of the day and restaurants to enjoy a finer dining experience. So whether you're looking to burn the candles at both ends or more interested in a more relaxing holiday you'll be able to enjoy your holiday in whichever way you choose.
Last of all you'll need to make your holiday run seamlessly. These are all the small, but important things that add up. For example, easy wifi access in your hotel room, having a shuttle bus at the airport thats easy to find, equipment hire that doesn't require you to haul things around to and from the store.
Japan is a society highly conscious of service with strong business competition to provide the best customer experience possible.
