Japan offers some of the best ski resorts in the world and a Japan ski holiday is a popular option for many Australians and overseas visitors. On any skiing holiday, it is recommended that you stay at one of the resorts on the ski fields for ease of access, however not all Japan ski accommodation is close to the slopes and with so much to see and do within the area, it can also be useful to stay somewhere that is more centrally located. Regardless of where you choose to visit, there is an excellent range of ski accommodation in Japan, particularly at some of the more popular resorts.
