If this is your first time to Japan, we definitely recommend that you spend a few days exploring Tokyo before, during or after your time on the slopes. Tokyo is one of the busiest cities in the world and boasts fantastic shopping, sightseeing and dining. The city is full of energy and is alive 24/7, so there is always something new and interesting to keep you entertained. Powder Recon staff would be more than happy to help point you in the right direction during your Tokyo stay or simply let you explore it for yourself.
In terms of accommodation in Tokyo, Powder Recon has agreements in place with several hotels, so we are able to assist you in booking this part of your trip too. Our hotel recommendations include;
