Ski on powdery snow, and relax in a hot spring
There are direct buses from Noazawa Onsen and Madarao Kogen to Myoko Kogen. For more details, please view the bus company’s website.
Mt. Myoko is one of Japan’s 100 famous mountains and is a 2454-meter-tall active volcano. It stands in Niigata Prefecture, near the border of Nagano prefecture, and the resort spreads out to the left side of Mt. Myoko. During the green season, it is also a popular hiking spot. In winter, due to the seasonal winds from the Sea of Japan, there is heavy snowfall, making it a snow lover’s dream
Mt. Myoko has nine ski slopes and hot springs, each with different features. Seki, Akakura, Ikenotaira, and Suginosawa are popular hot spring villages in this region.
Nozawa Onsen is also near Madarao Kogen, so during your stay, we also recommend skiing in the Myoko area.
