Sitting at the southern tip of Niigata Prefecture, Myoko is known for its deep snow and fantastic ski resorts. Less developed than the nearby resorts of Hakuba or Nozawa Onsen, Myoko retains a distinctly Japanese character. Boasting a huge amount of snowfall each winter, it really is one of Japan’s best destinations for powderhounds.
The area referred to as ‘Myoko Kogen’ consists of a number of resorts all known for their great powder. Though smaller than many other resorts in the Nagano, the deep powder, reliability of the snow, and open approach to backcountry skiing and snowboarding sets the resorts of Myoko apart from others.
Outside of winter, Myoko is a place of wild landscapes and bountiful farmlands. Hiking the mountain and forest trails opens-up a truly beautiful and pristine landscape, typified by features such Naena Falls.
From Myoko, numerous nearby attractions are also readily accessible including coastal areas along the Sea of Japan including the Noto Peninsula. Somewhat isolated and forgotten about, the Noto Peninsula is a beautiful destination in green season, best explored by rental car.
