Daisen ski resort is a relatively remote ski and snowboard destination near the Sea of Japan on the north coast of southwestern Honshu, about 250km NW of Osaka.
- Awesome views
- Heaps of intermediate groomers
- Crowded as it is the only resort in the area
- Very limited advanced options
- Lift alignment is weird meaning some walking may be necessary
- Can have limited snow so worth checking before making the trek.

Most people make use of the high-speed train connection from Osaka, which is fast and relatively cheap. By rail from Osaka, the Sanyo Shinkansen service runs to Okayama, a 50-minute journey, from where the Yonago-bound express service runs on the Hakubi Line to Yonago. The 2 hour, 20 minute train ride is comfortable and buses meet the arrival of trains at Yonago Station for the 45-minute journey to Daisen ski resort.
