Dream Japow Itinerary
Uncover the World's Best Skiing
This sample view of one of our winter itineraries lets you experience Japan at its coolest. For many, winter in Japan means skiing, and some of the best snow in the world can be found mere hours from the great metropolis of Tokyo.
Discover why Japan’s powder snow, known as Japow, is considered by many experts as the very best in the world. This itinerary gives you the opportunity to conquer the slopes of Hokkaido, try backcountry skiing in Nagano, the host of the 1998 Winter Olympics and see snow monkeys bathing in natural onsen springs along with other cultural experiences, including some time in Tokyo.
You’ll explore Hokkaido’s wilderness on a drift ice tour at the Okhotsk Sea and, by night, a CAT tour to explore the mountains further. Refuel with indulgent Japanese cuisine, including seasonal snow crab, sushi, hearty ramen and teppanyaki.
In the evening, retire to your luxury hotel or ski chalet, to immerse yourself in Japan’s winter wonderland.
