A complete Japanese Winter Holiday

Views of Japan temples and nature

Japan, called Nihon or Nippon in Japanese, means “the sun’s origin”. Often translated as “the land of the rising sun”, this fascinating country is made up of over six thousand islands, each having its own distinct culture. With a combination of ultra-modern comforts, technology and a rich culture, heritage and history spanning thousands of years, Japan has a near unlimited number of options for visitors to explore while holidaying!

So, when planning your next Hokkaido ski trip, why not add other beautiful parts of Japan to your holiday itinerary? Hokkaido Ski Club has partnered with JAPAN PRIVATE TOUR Co., Ltd. to offer you bespoke experiences across the gorgeous southern Japanese island of Honshu, which includes such gems such as the electrifying modernity of Tokyo, Osaka’s succulent cuisine and the ancient temples of Kyoto.

Immerse yourself in the bustling culture of Japan’s busy capital, Tokyo, and explore the city’s wonders, from its ultra-modern neon-lit skyscrapers to the famous tuna markets. Or spend time getting lost in the picturesque streets of Kyoto, wearing a traditional kimono dress and capturing your moment with your personal photographer. Convenient transport connections are available from Sapporo, with short plane rides and/or bullet trains to Tokyo, Kyoto and other cities across Honshu, making them perfect stops for your holiday in Japan.
