Inawashiro Ski Resort in Fukushima in the Tohoku region is a spectacular ski resort for all skiers including beginners and experienced, laid out in Bandai-Asahi National Park and surrounded by spectacular views of Mount Bandai and Lake Inawashiro.
The Sky and Base areas are a wide slope for beginners and families to enjoy. The Kids Park is for small children to play safely.
The Minero area has one of the toughest and most famous courses in the Tohoku region, where national competitions are held. On the other hand, most of the courses in this area are for intermediate-level skiers and snowboarders to enjoy gliding with a good speed. When it snows well, you can also enjoy non-compacted powder snow on the "All-Japan Ski Competition Course" located at the top of the slopes.
