Shizukuishi Ski Resort » Japan

An authentic Japanese ski resort in the Iwate prefecture in northern Honshu. Built in 1980 during the peak of the ski boom era, it has since become a bit of a hidden secret with very few westerners.

With no village, the ski-in/ski-out Prince Hotel is host to all the facilities and amenities you would expect from a quality resort hotel. We recommend starting the day with a Sunrise CAT Tour, allowing the children to explore 'Snow Land', a large area for children that includes snow tubing, sledging, sliders and snow striders, plus an essential dip in the beautiful Takakura Onsen.

Shizukuishi is a great 2-3 day add on for your next snow holiday to Japan. Children under 13 years ski for free.
