Ski Mada-Pow!

Ski Japan and stay at Raicho Lodge! Not only does Madarao Kogen Ski Resort offer some of the best powder skiing in Japan, it is relatively undiscovered. Less people, more powder!

It is the perfect base for your next adventure - boasting wonderful resort and backcountry conditions, 60% tree runs (the most in Japan!) and an average annual snowfall of more than 40 feet, this little-known Nagano gem is within easy striking distance from Tokyo. A Shinkansen from Tokyo or Ueno station will bring you to Iiyama station in under two hours, and from there it is a short shuttle ride to your new home in the snow - Raicho Lodge.

Stay with us, at Raicho Lodge

We provide a complimentary breakfast and free wifi for all of our guests, and featuring a luxurious in-house restaurant and full bar.

The lodge is surrounded by some excellent local Nagano ski resorts. Just 250 metres from the ski lifts at Madarao Kogen Ski Resort and under an hour by car to nearby Myoko Kogen and Nozawa Onsen resorts, and it’s just an hour and a half to Hakuba. Follow the snow!

Come discover Madarao! We are excited to welcome you to stay at Raicho Lodge.
