    So I am planning to go to japan again to snowboard, this time solo(im 27yo).

    Which resorts would be ideal for this, I'm thinking myoko kogen for 4-5 days then somewhere else.
    I would be staying in hostels to meet some new people etc.

    (I also already went to shiga kogen this year)
    Hakuba?

    Also do any of the hostels in these areas have an onsen, or one nearby?

    Cheers guys

    There's about 500 resorts to pick from. If you can't find a nearby onsen, you're in the wrong country ;)

    Powderhounds have a nice summary if you're trying to narrow things down.

    Hakuba would tick most of your boxes. Find a good lodge and you'll have fun for 10 days easy.

    If you are serious about riding stay with Nick at the Powder Lodge. If its more Apres and riding try Monkey Rider.

    10 days - stay in one place. Hakuba and Myoko the most straightforward choices.
    Myoko Powder Hostel and Japow House are your two best hostel choices in Myoko. Funky Monkey is good too but further down the hill. They don't have onsen but there's ones very close.
    A couple of hotels in Myoko offering shared rooms now but I tend not to recommend either of them. If interested I can organise a single room at an Akakura hotel with onsen for you - 8,400 a night (if staying 10 nights).
