Visit Madarao

Come and ski Japan with us! 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 1 hour and 40 minutes, and from there it is a short 25 minute shuttle ride to your new home in the snow - Raicho Lodge.

Stay with us, at Raicho Lodge
