If you come up this way, then don't ignore Onikobe in Miyagi. It's smaller than the Appi and Zao, but not small by Tohoku standards. Onikobe certainly has more variey than Appi. It also has the steepest skiing I've come across in Tohoku, as well as some tree-runs if that's your thing.


It gets good snow, and has a nighta.


I'd caution that they shut the upper lifts when it is windy, but them's the breaks.


The whole area was developed by Mitsubishi during the bubble and is well organised. The main hotel is right on the slopes and is very comfortable, nicely appointed, though western style. It has a great spa which looks out over the mountains. There are other places to stay locally though.
