A fun little resort
A nice little local resort. For people in the area it is a good place for a midweek day off or families at the weekend.

Compared with nearby Asama 2000 this resort is excellent but it can't compete with the Northern Nagano giants.

It is rather small but the snow is usually fairly soft (most likely due to the high altitude and low temps rather than frequent top ups.)

At the start of the season in mid to late November the place can get pretty busy with many locals arriving for pre-season practice, but once the season starts the lifts get pretty quiet and you may have courses to yourself (and whatever 90s pop they decide to play on the speaker system.)

Check out their site for men's/women's day promotions too.

All in all, a fun and friendly resort. Just don't plan a whole holiday around the place.
Snow condition on visit: Snow machine base with a few cms of fresh.
Things I liked: Reasonable snow and not many people
Things I didn't like: Rather small and not much fresh snow. Loud music from PA.
