Kawaba resort review (Kawaba Village, Gunma)

Nice place. Oh yes, multi-story car park
Kawaba. I like it. Someone else mentioned it but when I first went it was bigger than I expected looking at the map. Not too many lifts but they are long and there's some really good runs. Gets very cold up there.

Special mention to the multi-story car park at the base which wouldn't be out of place in a city center. Looks very odd, but serves a good purpose. Above it is the base center of the resort with rental, restaurants, shops and you walk out onto the slopes.

Definitely worth a visit.
