Yokohama, Japan, Melb. Expat.
Many people still seem to want to go to Japan in the 2023 snow season even if borders are not open to solo tourists.

There are ways to do this. Seemingly, you can only do this if you go on a Japanese run tour, with restrictions such as needing to follow the tour guide around everywhere, and not have any choice about mountain, run or where to eat. This is NOT attractive for most people here.


If you are interested in other ways, let me know and I'll create a PM and invite multiple people.

Let me know if you want me to invite you into the PM.
(don't send me a PM, I will get deluged!!!!)

I’d be very interested in anything that makes it possible - really don’t want to cancel bookings again
I have eight [possibly more] people who have slightly different travel plans between 25.1.23 and 28.2.23, intersecting in different combinations at Shiga Kogen, Nozawa Onsen and Hakuba
could be tricky making a group!

Please invite me in to the PM group @Sandy. Asking for a friend ( my wife) and yours truly. Targeting February for good snow, fewer people and maybe some sunshine.

Thinking about what a difference it will make to little old me if Japan opens, if you scale that up to the entire breadth of the industry the impact is enormous.
As I was reading this thread I was thinking you'd find this one interesting research data!

I’ll pass this info on if that’s ok. Met a DWA guide today who is booked for Nozawa then Rusutsu on a personal trip who might like a back up option.

Just to get original Koseki is a big work.

Good one first collects skis after emigration.
I could have some difficulties explaining skiing with 89 years old for 30 days.
Hope we will make it this winter.

I assume you have a focus on Honshu? We’re currently booked to Sapporo but can always change that if necessary. Count me in
