The Mitsumata Ropeway is an easy stroll away, with plenty of options for ski and board hire along the way. The ski resort encompasses three areas – Mitsumata, Kagura and Tashiro. Mitsumata and Tashiro are great locations to learn to ski or board, with Kagura catering to the more experienced riders with back and side country galore! All areas are accessible via the Mitsumata Ropeway.

At the end of the street is the Mitsumata visitor centre showcasing local produce and souvenirs, and across the road from it is Kaido no yu onsen, perfect for a soak at the end of a big Japan powder day!  

During the summer months, Mitsumata, Kagura and Tashiro are perfect for hiking, with trails catering for beginners through to experienced hikers. In July, Naeba, hosts the Fuji Rock Festival, the largest rock festival in Japan.
