Highlights: Get off the beaten track to rural Japan and lesser known resorts

Tohoku may be the last undiscovered frontier of Japan powder skiing. This region is defined as the northern portion of Japan`s main island of Honshu encompassing the prefectures of Aomori, Akita, Iwate, Fukushima, Miyagi and Yamagata.  The area is dotted with small resorts, receives plenty of snow and cooler temperatures here make conditions more reliable than further South in the better known areas of Hakuba and Niigata. You can also expect to find far fewer foreigners which adds up to less competition on a powder day.
