Dive Fish Snow Holidays - Japan

Mother Nature is what distinguishes the magical Ski resorts of Mt Niseko, Mt Rusutsu and Mt Furano (in the northern island of Hokkaido) and Mt Hukuba (on the Japanese mainland) from other World class Ski Resorts...


Hokkaido lies directly on the snow highway of the Siberian Desert storms as they race across the Sea of Japan and slam into Hokkaido's high peaks, dumping a staggering 14 metres of the coldest, driest and fluffiest powder snow imaginable across Mts Niseko, Rusutsu and Furano.


But skiing in Japan has so much more to offer the International skier and rider than just legendary snow. It also offers a unique chance to explore the history of Japan's ancient and modern cultures, combined with all the marvels and fascination of the Orient. The Japanese people are warm and friendly and love to introduce visitors to the mystical charm and beauty of their country and their customs, making your ski holiday exciting and fun, on and off the slopes. Enjoy traditional Japanese cuisine or modern European food served in a Japanese style, or soak your tired muscles in an onsen - traditional Japanese bathhouse.

Don't panic if you don't speak a word of Japanese; it's not a problem. In the ski towns of Hokkaido and Hukuba, English is widely spoken as a second language, and the ski hosts and ski instructors are usually English, or English speaking. Even if the locals don't speak perfect English, they more than make up for it with their enthusiastic desire to share their slice of skiers' heaven with visitors.


Booking a snow Japan skiing experience yourself can be fraught with the odd hidden surprise. But the only surprise when you book with the experts - Dive Fish Snow Travel, is how easy they make it. They've been there and personally checked out the various Ski Resorts and accommodation options, from ski-in ski-out locations, affordable family owned bed and breakfast ski lodges to modern European condos with great views and the latest in Japanese gadgetry.

And don't forget about stopovers and day trips to exotic destinations such as Tokyo, Osaka and Sapporo, or to Otaru - a delightful former fishing village set amid several canals , or take the bullet train to visit thought provoking traditional temples of Imperial Japan in Kyoto. The team at Dive Fish Snow Travel will be only too happy to help you, and make it easy for you.
