Amazing Madarao or is it MadaPow
Madarao is always special to us as it has some serious black runs, some awesome moguls and has an enormous tree skiing area which is allowed and encouraged there. The super fast Shinkansen bullet train now goes to Iiyama which is in the Niigata Prefecture. So it’s only a bit over two hours staight from Tokyo and is then only 20 mins up the hill to Madarao, making it really easy and quick
to get you on snow. Madarao gets the most snowfall of any resorts in the region. The Kogan Hotel’s buffet is to die for and Jazzy’s and Rudolph’s restaurant are exceptionally inviting, are very interesting and all have a wonderful mix of Japanese and Western fare.
