The Akakura Onsen and Kanko Ski Areas are known as the heart of the Myoko Ski Resort and are the most popular village locations to stay.

Hi Melissa,
Thanks heaps for the ski tour you organised for us. Just got back and are winding down from the 16 days out of a possible 18 days we skied. Was not always perfect powder but the locations, towns and people by far made up for that. Tokyo was a blast as well, never enough time to do every thing but hardly slept.
Look forward to seeing you at the next snow show, as have big plans for 2020.
Thanks again for making it so memorable
