    Niseko United - Yokubari pack

    This could well be the case! Even a picture of the actual final item to select would be incredibly helpfull so I could just show that! Didn't expect it to be such an issue last time, and had the next best thing (Japanese webpage on my phone) but to not much avail. I'll take printouts this time as well. I'm staying at the first cabin in Kutchan this time round, which has a Lawson on-site, which gives me some more time to go and explore the loppi machine without my wife complaining she's freezing

  7. Around this time last year, we decided that we wanted to have own original maps on SnowJapan. Since the beginning of 2019 we have been working on making it happen and at last we have been able to get them all online. When we first started thinking about doing this, it was obvious that we needed to make various decisions. What to include. What to not include. What information was important. What important was less so. (Not to mention, what was possible to create!) We won’t bore you with the details, but there is logic behind each of the decisions that we made and we feel that what we have created will be of real help to people wanting to learn about ski resorts in Japan. In total we have created 818 maps and they are all to be found within the Snow Resorts section of the site: https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts There are 4 different kinds of map images: Ski Resort maps 502 maps These small maps appear on each of the ski resort information pages within SnowJapan. Examples: https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/niigata/yuzawa/gala-yuzawa https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/hokkaido/kutchan/niseko-hanazono-resort They show the following information: - Location of the ski resort within the highlighted Prefecture - The surrounding Prefectures - The wider region of Japan Prefecture maps 32 maps These maps are displayed on each of the prefecture listing pages within the site. Examples: https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/prefecture/gunma https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/prefecture/nagano They show the following information: - Location of the Prefecture within Japan - Location of each of the ski resorts within that prefecture - Some major city names - The surrounding Prefectures Town maps 270 maps These maps are displayed on each of the town listing pages within the site. Examples: https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/town/yuzawa https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/town/hakuba They show the following information: - Location of the Prefecture within Japan - The location of the town, highlighted in yellow - All towns in the Prefecture that have one or more ski resorts - The surrounding Prefectures Popular area maps 14 maps These maps are displayed on popular area/region listings within the site. Examples: https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/area/shiga-kogen-nagano https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/area/yuzawa-niigata They show the following information: - Location of the region - Location of ski resorts in the region - Major train lines, stations, expressways, roads and road exits - Surrounding towns and Prefectures These ‘popular areas’ are not strictly defined regions, tourism associations or anything like that. They are simply defined by us and we may add/change/adjust them at any time. General Notes: Over the many months of work we have put into this project, we have always tried to be as careful as possible. We want everything to be correct. However, there is of course always the chance of some small mistakes sneaking through. We will try to fix up any ourselves, but if you do find anything that you believe to be a mistake ---- please do get in touch and let us know! They are our original maps and we can easily edit and update them. If you so wish, you are very welcome to link directly to any of our pages and do not need to ask for permission. (Please do that rather than try to copy our work!) Googlemaps may not always appear on some of the listing pages, but they will always remain on the individual ‘Location’ and ‘Route Finder’ pages for each of the ski resorts. Hope you like them! We feel these new images are a good addition to the site. We hope you like them and find them to be useful.

    Niseko United - Yokubari pack

    I'd take a print out of the Japanese version of the page and show them that.
  10. There is plenty to enjoy in one area for well over a day, so I would recommend you buy the individual ticket.

  13. Hi! Just looking at the lift tickets for Niseko. The individual ones are a fair bit cheaper than Niseko United. Can someone tell me the benefit of going United rather than individual? Seems to me it would be best to buy individual and spend that particular day in that area - certainly looks good enough to keep you occupied! Or am I missing something? Thanks

  16. Can just imagine a silly gondola going over the Kanetsu Expressway, Route 17 etc. Quite funny actually. I don't know if the Prince stories were just made up or not. There certainly were more than few bonkers ideas proposed though so wouldn't put it past them!

    Ski rentals, Fukushima, Akita, Iwate.

    Hi Muikabochi, That should be 1800JPY per day, not 18,000JPY, my mistake - this is what I pay for late model rental ski's in Hokkaido - approximately half price compared to late model rental skis here on NZ.
