Tohoku, in northern Japan, is where you come face to face with Japan’s original “Juhyo,” or Ice Monster. No, it’s not an animation character.
It is a rare natural wonder created by the area’s ideal snow-making climate.
The mountainous region’s coniferous trees are so enveloped by ice and snow during winter that they turn into towering monsters! Words cannot describe the sensation of zipping between the Ice Monsters, not to mention the spectacular illumination at night.
Tohoku is also a region where ancient Japanese traditions still enter daily life.
Visiting the nearby onsen spas and townships will be an unforgettable experience for you and your family.
Tohoku offers a lot more than perfect powder snow. We are sure you’ll treasure your stay.
Even better, Tohoku is so easy to get to – be on the slopes the same day you fly into Tokyo!
