At the Tazawako ski resort, all slopes have a view of Lake Tazawa, the deepest lake in Japan. View the mountains and lake while continuously sliding down on the exciting big slope. There’s fun for experts, beginners, and everyone in between. They also have night lights, so you can enjoy the slopes well into the night. We recommend the Kokutai course that runs 700 meters from the 1,200 meter Hachigatake eight-step hut! It’s a course we’d love for beginners to give a try. There’s also a kids’ area on the grounds, so the whole family can have fun. There’s also the restaurant Shirakaba, which serves Inaniwa udon, Yokote yakisoba, locally-brewed beer, and another local gourmet at the food court. After a tiring day on the slopes, relax in the lounge with local food.
