Hi all,

I'm heading to Japan on the 26th straight to Shiga for some skiing. My partner and myself are looking to kit ourselves out with some new skis, but we are having a hard time working out if we will have any luck buying Skis in Shiga Kogen at a reasonable price? Or would we have more luck looking around Sydney?

We are staying in Prince hotels, it looks like there are a few shops around to rent, but we don't want to pay a premium to buy.

Any input appreciated.

no esp if you can find anything to buy up there, if you were doing a few days in tokyo first you might be able to pick up a bargain in kanda

Wasn't looking closely at jackets M as I've got a few. We were looking for pants though. Lots of good product but way out of my price range.

There's a pretty big ski shop in the Prince at Shiga, didn't look closely at the range but doubt you'll find many bargains there,

Been to kanda three times this week. There is so much stuff there and some is very cheap. Cant tell about skis cause I board but got my sons girl friend a gortex jacket in london for 6500 yen.
if you land early you can go there before you head out and still get to shiga at a respectable time.
there must be 30 -50 shops to go through
Amazing place and if you are not big brand orientated, there is so much.
Did notice alot of Jones hovercraft powderboards around alot of different shops if that is your fancy.
