Hi there, Family ( 3 kids and the Mrs) and I are travelling to Japan, skiing Myoko/Nozawa from Jan 1st 2020. First ever trip to Japan. We arrive Tokyo on December 31st and will head to Myoko via Nagano on trains on Jan 1st. We want to get skiing asap on arrival but would like to purchase some ski gear ( skis for our 5 y/o for example) ASAP on arrival. We wont have time in Tokyo (plus it'll be NYE). I would really appreciate any tips/advice on buying gear in either Nagano or Myoko. Whats best for us to get widest selection, value etc... We are also happy to buy online to collect on arrival if thats possible/better! Thanks in advance!
