It is one of the most famous Ski resorts in Japan for the consistency of the powder and the amount of snowfall it receives. The average snow depth by February is 3.5 meters.

Mt Yohtei makes an impressive background to the village. Some say its shape resembles Mt Fuji.

The village is a fascinating mix of traditional and new Japan. It boasts of traditional bars (Izakaya) and traditional inns (Ryokan) as well as modern hotels and nightclubs. Niseko also offers 16 hot spring Onsens (Traditional Japanese bath-houses), a great way to re-energize and soothe the tired body.

Asahidake Ski Resort

Asahidake Ski Resort is the highest mountain in

Hokkaido (2,290m) and a live volcano. Its conical-shaped volcano makes a striking setting for the ski area. It sends out a stream of smoke from time to time.

I am told the powder here is considered among the finest in the world and will not disappoint even the most accomplished skiers.

Niseko and Asahikawa are very cold in January and February. The average daytime temperature in the mountains could get to -12 to -20 degrees Celsius, although colder days of -30 degrees Celsius are also possible.

Another famous Ski Japan Holiday Resort in Hokkaido is Kamui, which sits in a valley that is situated perfectly for gathering snow.
