Mt Jeans Ski Resort Nasu is located in Nasu town, to the west of Shirakawa city in the northern region of Tochigi Prefecture. The name of this ski hill apparently comes from the words 'Joyful, Exciting, Adventure, Nature, Sporting'. Within reach of Tokyo it is a popular day-trip resort for people based in the capital city region. It has been operating since 1994. Nasu Onsen Family is quite close by. The 'Jeans' name comes from the words 'Joyful - Exciting - Adventure - Nature - Sporting'.

Pets (type of animal not specified!) are charged 800 yen to ride the Gondola! (There is a dog run facility at the top).

Tochigi Prefecture is located to the north of Tokyo and is perhaps best known for the Nikko and the famous Toshogu Shrine, Lake Chuzenji, Kegon Falls, the Oku Nikko area and also the mountainous region in the north that includes Mt Takahara and Mt Nasu.

The 2018-2019 winter season is approaching! Hurray!

At the time of writing more than 60% of the ski hills in Japan have still not updated their own information for the upcoming season. We are continuing to manually update the information on these ski resort pages of SnowJapan but for the moment things are unavoidably a mix of old and new. In most cases ski resorts open and close around the same dates each season, so even if the planned season dates shown on this page are still from the 2017-2018 season, that is usually a good indication of what to expect this time round.
