Depart in the morning from a central meeting point in Tokyo’s Shinjuku neighborhood in front of the Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi. You’ll board an air-conditioned coach bus for the 2-hour drive to Norn Minakami Ski Resort.
Arrive at this winter paradise and take part in a range of fun winter activities, including snow shoveling, sledding, snowman building, and much more. Whether you’re 8 or 80, you’re sure to have a good time frolicking in the snow of one of Japan’s most popular ski resorts. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, continue a local eatery where you’ll enjoy a buffet lunch of fresh seafood, including a selection of crab and shrimp.
Assuming you’re not already full from lunch, save room for dessert by heading next to Harada Strawberry Farm, where you’ll enjoy an ‘all-you-can-eat’ experience picking ripe berries in the farm’s fields. You’ll head back to your original pickup point in Shinjuku at the end of the day, returning in the evening.
