Ski Down Powder Slopes and Soak in Spectacular Hot Springs


Enjoy superb winter activities and relaxation in the mountains of Niigata


Often getting a meter of snowfall in one night, Myoko City is a winter wonderland with gorgeous views of the snowy mountains. Situated at an altitude of 1,000 meters on Mt. Myoko is the Akakura Kanko Hotel, an authentic highland resort accommodation.


The hotel is connected to Akakura Kanko Resort, an international ski resort with runs stretching over 4 kilometers. This sky-high location ensures you will have a fantastic view as you zip down slopes blessed with powder snow due to their proximity to the Sea of Japan.



After an exhilarating day in the snow, soak your bones in the hotel’s hot spring baths. The spring flows directly from Mt. Myoko’s Kita-Jigokudani valley, and is said to be effective in curing ailments and revitalizing the skin. Take your pick of outdoor and indoor baths, and let the waters soothe your mind and body as you gaze upon the rustic towns, mountains, and other natural wonders stretching for kilometers in the distance.
