The GRANDECO Snow Resort

Powder snow resort with a variety of adventures for the whole family!

The GRANDECO Snow Resort is the closest powder snow paradise from Tokyo. The terrain is a little narrow but long enough to keep everyone occupied throughout the day.

Even beginners and kids can take a gondola to a 3,500-meter long trail where they can build their skills while enjoying themselves. There are also mogul and slalom runs advanced skiers and snowboarders will love.

The GRANDECO is the only ski resort in Japan that is equipped only with hooded high-speed quads, which will comfortably take you up to the slopes while you are enjoying conversation and great views.

This resort also features a long ski season, from late November to early May, offering various opportunities to enjoy snow activities such as a sleigh ride competition for children and a volleyball tournament on the snow.

Sightseeing in the area around The GRANDECO Snow Resort

Lake Hibara

Lake Hibara is the largest lake in the Ura-Bandai area. This island-spotted lake captivates a great number of tourists with its complex landscape and clear blue water. During the winter season, you can enjoy fishing for "wakasagi" (Japanese pond smelts) on the iced lake. You can also rent fishing gears as well as huts and tents to shelter from the snow and wind, so even if you turn up empty handed you can still join in the fun.

  • [Information]

    Lake Hibara Boat Cruise (everyday from late April to early November): JPY 1,000 per adult and JPY 500 per child

Road Station URABANDAI

Road Station URABANDAI is located on the shore of Lake Hibara, and serves tourists with its restaurants that are popular for its tempura and soba noodles made from local ingredients, as well as its shops that sell souvenirs and local produce. Yamajio (literally "Mountain salt"), which is salt obtained from boiling down hot spring water, tastes different to sea salt and has an intriguingly complex flavor, making it a perfect souvenir.

*During the winter season, the station is closed on Wednesdays.
