  1. This is by train / bus. Am I right in thinking that the best way is to get the Joetsu Shinkansen from Minakami to Takasaki, and then the Hokuriku Shinkansen up to Nagano? Thanks!
  2. Hello Good to meet you Anyone here know the ski hills in Minakami well? We want to know which might be the best place for a young family with beginner kids. We're interested in the playing in the snow activity thing as much as skiing. Thank you.
  3. By Minakami, I mean the tourism office or whatever - they seem to include Naeba in their reports of the ski resorts. Naeba is in Yuzawa, right? Why not include Kagura or GALA or others in Yuzawa? It comes over as being kind of misleading. Not going to lose sleep over it, I'm just curious!

    Hi Last year we went to Minakami in summer and loved it. Not been in winter yet but wondering what people thought about places. We are fairly decent intermediate skiers, usually staying on or at lease close to courses and groomers. Was looking at Hodaigi or Okutone.

  8. I have had my eye on today since earlier this week as it was always looking like it would clear up and be fab weather. The question was.... where to go. I found myself on the Kanetsu this morning going over to Minakami and the fantastically awesomely beautiful surroundings of Tanigawa, along with the always annoying ski-jo that is Tanigawadake Tenjindaira. I'll put the rant in spoilers, as lots of it is similar to last year. And the year before. But it needs to be said! So, fantastic blue skies this morning. Lots of 'ants' walking up the mountain. Yes, it's just beautiful up there. In no particular order, all taken from within the skijo area.
  9. Beautiful weather from early on this morning both here in Minamiuonuma and also over in Gunma. So I was off to one of my favourite skijos for photos - Tanigawa Tenjindaira in Minakami, Gunma. About 50 minutes drive from where I live. Beautiful clear blue skies. Got on the Gondola at 6am and arrived at the top at 9am. Just kidding. Took some knitting to amuse myself on the ride up. Had a bit of a panic when I was trying to get a shot just beyond a rope. Bending down and my camera bag was open. 2 lens roll out of bag and one of them starts going down a rather steep area. I thought it was a gonner. Went into a bit of a panic and lost my balance in this rather dangerous position. Luckily I didn't slip in the wrong place and luckily the lens stopped and so I was just about able to rescue it. But it took a while to get composure back, pretty scary. You'll see one some of those photos people hiking up. Must say, the thought scares me. I'll just take photos of them! Totally stunning place. I think I said that last year. I just love the scale of the scenery. Unfortunately scaling photos down to small jpgs really takes away lots of the impact of this place. Check out all the 'little people'! Here's a couple larger ones that SJ kindly said ok. http://www.snowjapan.com/e/tenjina.jpg http://www.snowjapan.com/e/tenjinb.jpg If you want to see any others "bigger" let me know which one and I'll save it bigger. In no particular order (sorry so many, need to get some work done!)
  10. Seems like an age ago now but sometime in February. Beautiful day, Slowest Gondola In the World ©, small resort but big views. Worth going once just for the feast for the eyes. My rubbish pics don't do the place justics. I think I would like to go in summer too.
