  Hachikogen Ski Resort
by kenmerk

Not one of the famous Japanese Ski resorts, like Nagano or Niseko.  But, I need a fast easy place to get to for a few days of skiing from the Kobe area. Suprisingly, I found the snow quality (and quantity) here to be excellent.  (It pretty much snowed the whole time we were up there)

This place makes a nice easy side trip from the Kansai area if you want to make a quick ski trip without the cost and travel time of getting to its more famous cousins. To get here, its about a 2 hour train ride from Kobe to Youka.  (the line through Himeji towards Tottori)  The about an hour ride on a local bus up towards Hachibuse Mountain.
