Myoko Kogen

Myoko Kogen

The Myoko Kogen ski area in ‘The Heart of Japan’ is ideal for powder hounds.  With over a hundred years of skiing to its credit and with snowfalls of up to 13 metres each year, Myoko Kogen is renowned for its soft deep powder.  The Myoko area is made up of several ski resorts; Myoko Akakura, Myoko Suginohara and Ikenotaira Onsen, that are largely linked together by shuttle bus.

The main ski area is Myoko Akakura which is made up of two resorts side by side; Akakura Kanko ski resort and Akakura Onsen. Most of the accommodation is based in and around the main village of Akakura, and as Japan’s first international mountain resort Myoko Kogen is well known for its rich history, culture and traditional onsens.

Why Myoko Kogen


With a huge annual snowfall of over 13 metres the slopes are always in pristine condition and the experts will be thrilled with the easy access to the side country and renowned tree skiing.


The birthplace of skiing in Japan gives a great sense of history while hitting the slopes. The Akakura Kanko Hotel is an imposing reminder of these origins and commands a position overlooking the valley below.


The onsens here are often less frequented so allows for a truly meditative soak after a long day on the slopes. Explore the outdoor options for that memorable experience.
