I too have spent a fortune training up a ski buddy (when she slows down enough to ski with me) who now can't afford to come skiing with me. In my case +1 expressly forbids me from subsidising her. I can accept that it's important for F20 to develop a work ethic but it sure f**s up my ski holidays.
PM sentIt's possible I may be heading up that way around then.....
Finally got round to watching this and had to stop myself laughing out loud too much. There were some fun stats which I’ve never heard before...is it true that at its peak there were 800(!!) resorts? And is Seki seriously the oldest resort in Japan?
There have been a lot of American groups touring Myoko for many years. Almost threw one out onto the street for annoying patrons and staff in a restaurant. I think he was a guide, one of those popup tour groups who couldn't speak a word of Japanese apart from sumimasen. It's was getting way too crowded for a small town but dam I do like the place.Americans.
There are a few more new restaurants opening this season. It really depends on what you want. But I would:Third time back to Myoko this Jan, as excited about the snow as I am, I'm also hanging out for the food, any recommendations on places to eat from the locals, Skichanger? on previous visit really enjoyed some of the places up near the T junction, Kei, Asagao, hoping to try Avaya this year if we can find it.
Also is our New Years Eve normally celebrated in any way in Myoko? bonfire/fireworks that sort of thing, some off the crew are keen to see in the new year in some way.
Heading back to Myoko this year for the third time, but haven't been for a couple of years.
What is the ATM situation in Myoko these days? Still just the post office, or are there now more options for cash?
Lift tickets, no CC is ok. Once the restaurant guide comes out you will know who takes CCs. There is no supermarket. Ski Hire should be ok on a CC. I think you will need cash for lunch on the mountain.WIll I need much cash in Madarao for things like lift tickets, ski hire, supermarket or is Visa widely accepted?
