Best decent place to snowboard from Kyoto

Question

Hi folks

This is for next season because I'm not in Japan right now. But I will be moving to near Kyoto in the summer and so really up for some snowboarding when I'm over there.

Anyone in the area able to recommend places within reach. Don't think I'll have a car at first at least. I can see places on a map etc but would be good to get some feedback.

Thanks

Pete

The nearest popular place will be Biwako Valley.

If you want larger scale, you will need to go further afield.

Biwako is easiest, but not great. You should be able to find organized ski buses that will take you from Kyoto to some decent resorts in Gifu or Hakuba

Yes Biwako is the near place for you but you will likely bore of that quickly.

I would recommend getting one of the bus tours - there are quite a lot of them.
