Japan is home to loads and loads of mountains most of which are covered in snow throughout the winters, making a perfect setting for winter sports. There are more than 50 famous ski resorts in Japan scattered in different prefectures. The northern part of Hokkaido, where the Japan Alps are present are the best place for skiing. These resorts are well equipped to have trained guides to cater to skiers with different levels of skills. Tohuko and Shikoku regions also flaunt some really wonderful snow laced slopes and ski resorts.
