Marunuma Kogen review by Mie
I've been there 3 times this season from Tokyo. It is very far from the IC - about 1 hour from Numata IC.

But, the snow is good, it's quiet and not crowded on weekdays, and has many intermediate slopes.

It's my favourite resort!
Date visited: From 15 January, 2004
Snow condition on visit: Blizzard but great snow
Things I liked: Great snow, long season, not so crowded
Things I didn't like: Bad access, so so food, no night skiing
