Thankyou so much all! I think we have decided on Nozawa. It looks amazing and very cute village to relax in if the snow is not that great (will still be better than Australia I'm sure!). Unfortunately we can't change our dates.
Really appreciate all your help.
Any tips on where to stay in Sapporro? We might need to stay there one night when we travel up to Niseko.
Awesome thanks for the help. Any suggestions on where is better? Or personal preferences?
We it's only because we are first time to Japan and many have told us it's really difficult to get around without knowing Japanese. But hey I'm keen for the adventure of getting lost!
Hi all! My name is Caitlyn, my hubby and I have planned a trip to Japan for some snow late Feb/Early March. The plan so far is to arrive in Tokyo, one night there, and then spend four nights in Shiga Kogen or Nozawa Onsen (3 full boarding days).
Then we meet our friends back in Tokyo and cruise around Tokyo 2 nights/Kyoto 2 nights then head up to Sapporo for one night, then to Niseko for 5 nights (4 days of boarding).
My question is, which is better all round between Shiga Kogen and Nozawa Onsen? Or is there somewhere better?
We wouldn't mind seeing some cultural Japan, I understand Nozawa Onsen is better for that? We are on quite a tight budget but happy to spend more if it's easier for us (i.e. having some english speaking people around). Also which is easier to travel to from Tokyo?
Thanks heaps all for your help! Any suggestions is great, its a first time for us in Japan and we are super excited, we have always wanted to go!
Nozawa Onsen vs Shiga Kogen?
