Oku Ibuki review by Snow Kobe
It gets 3 stars because with snow it looked like it might be fun.

Narrow runs, but a series of lifts takes you up over 1,000m in altitude. Some lifts require you to walk uphill to get to the next-didn't anyone take Resort Building 101 in school?

All the areas were lacking snow, but the 50cm advertised was actually 0-30cm in most places. Fun enough for little kids, but most areas would be closed if they had such a small base.

Location is about 30-45min from expressway, so getting to Kyoto in about 75 minutes hour is possible.
Date visited: From 05 January, 2007
Snow condition on visit: Virtually no snow
Things I liked: Proximitiy to Kyoto/Osaka
Things I didn't like: Lack of snow
