Sooooo happy I discovered Iwakura this year... my own fault for ignoring the signs on the way to Marunuma.

I've already been twice this season and am planning to go again soon.

I live in Tokyo, but I've come to like this place so much that I'd probably consider getting a season pass... but alas, I tend to cheat on my favorite ski-jo's.

All you really need to know is Gondola + Milky Way. Best combo ever.
Date visited: No specific date.
Snow condition on visit: Super pow one day; packed pow on another
Things I liked: Gondola + Milky Way
Things I didn't like: No washlets :(
