Just come back from a fantastic week up in Hokkaido and specifically Niseko. It was my first time there and wondered if the snow could really live up to the reputation. It did. We got such consistent and quality snow, it almost felt not possible! Truly excellent and better than anywhere else I have experienced in Japan.
I have nothing against foreigners, I am one myself, but Niseko is no totally overwhelmed with international guests that it almost doesn't feel like Japan any
