Niseko Grand Hirafu review
This is easily the best boarding I've done or heard of in Japan. Minimal lines, heaps of light dry powder, variety of terrain, great scenery.

Wow!

Runs are a little short and there are no full-on black diamond runs (typical Japanese style), but I'd recommend this to anyone.
Snow condition on visit: Beautiful beautiful powder
Things I liked: Off-piste heaven, chest-deep powder
Things I didn't like: Short runs, nightlife
