Unlike many of the westernised resorts throughout Japan, Shizukuishi is a small, compact resort offering 5 lifts and a ropeway tram allowing you to really experience a true Japanese styled ski resort. The area hosted the Alpine World Ski Championships held in 1993 and you will still find a diverse terrain including a full-scale downhill race course, two outstanding terrain parks and the longest trail covering 4,500m. After a day on the slopes visitors can experience Japanese traditions and relax in the Takakura Onsen – a hot spring that has been recognised as an onsen heritage site.
