Shizukuishi is very much a Japanese ski resort, and perfect for travellers to Japan not wanting a Niseko or Hakuba

Shizukuishi ski resort is located in northern Honshu in the prefecture of Iwate, 560km north of Tokyo.

The Shizukuishi Resort is situated just north of the town of Shizukuishi and about 13km from the Akita Shinkansen’s Shizukuishi Station, and 28km northwest of the city of Morioka (a drive of about 35-45 minutes).

From Tokyo, train travel is the easiest way to get there –  the Prince Hotel provides free shuttles from the local train station to the resort.
