    Hi Guys, We are looking to spend 5 - 7 days in March 2019 with our 7 year old snowboarding before we go to Tokyo Disneyland etc. Where do you recommend for kids? Somewhere with childcare options and a good range of food for a fussy eater. We have been to Shiga Kogen before (without the child) and loved it but not sure if it has many options/activities for kids - also keen to try somewhere different. The Club Med all inclusive options look good for the child, but are they worth the price tag?

    First mistake ......you are the boss not the kid .
    My kids were fussy eaters also and lived off rice with soy for many trips to Japan . They eventually learnt not to be so fussy .

    Be careful with club med and 7 yr old snowboarding. It may have changed but they did not provide snowboard lessons for children in the past (may have been not for kids under 12...). Can’t quite recall but it was the reason we ruled Club Med out. (Caveat: my youngest is 18 so this was a long while ago and things may have changed).

    Expect spring skiing/boarding. Myoko or Madarao would be fine. And I assume Hakuba and Nozawa would be good as well. Maybe Naeba as there are some English language ski schools in Yuzawa.

    You'll get some great spring deals then. My first step would be to research/contact some ski schools - Myoko Snowsports, Evergreen Hakuba, Nozawa Ski School, North Nagano Outdoor Sports (Madarao). See what they have to offer. When you think you have found found what will suit best THEN book your accommodation close by. There will be plenty of options.
