Overview 

Small resort, the closest to the town of Inawashiro, not to be consfused with the older Inawashiro ski area. Good for a day trip. Basically serviced by a gondola and 3 chairs which end up around the same place as the gondola. Mostly easy to intermediate trails with a couple of steeper runs.

Location

Fukushima prefecture, about 10 mins from Inawashiro station.

Pros

Very close to town, good views of lake Inawashiro, good family resort.

Cons

Only a couple of steeper runs.
