Japan: Hiroshima - Skiing

Skiing is great in Japan. Since there are mountains everywhere it is easy to get to a ski lodge. The one we went to was less than a 1.5 hr. drive away from Hiroshima. It was a ski resort and onsen in one. So afterwards we got to soak our sore muscles in the Hot Springs!

It was my 2nd time skiing in my life and we had alot of FUN! The snow was soft and the sun was out. People assume it is too expensive here but I dont' find it to be that much more than the U.S. Ski equipment rental was about $33 (boots, skis and poles). And a 6 hr. lift ticket is $35.
