Fancy swapping your swimmers for a ski jacket or snowboard this summer holiday?
Hidden in the majestic Northern Alps in Nagano Prefecture, Hakuba is one of Japan’s top snow resort destinations with a long-standing reputation since 1928 for high levels of snowfall and unrivalled fine powder. It’s no wonder it was chosen as the site of the 1998 Winter Olympics.
Unlike renowned Niseko snow resort, which is fairly Westernised, Hakuba still holds onto its Japanese traditional roots allowing you to also experience the culture, history and hospitality.
