    Gala Yuzawa

    January 23, 2016 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Your trip to Japan in winter is not complete if you don’t visit at least one ski resort. The Gala Yuzawa ski resort is the only ski resort in Japan which has its own bullet train station. Easy access. No hassle. Its direct from Tokyo. If you are not into skiing, why not try snowboarding? Either way, this resort offers beginner lessons if you know next to nothing regarding these two sports. Not into the above activities? That’s fine too. You can always go sledding or throw snowballs at random Japanese people (or not). The cafeteria here has the most amazing view (Picture 5). Enjoy the sight of frost tipped mountains while you sip on warm green tea.

    There are souvenir shops here. I recommend the Gala Yuzawa Chocolate Mochi (Picture 6). It melts in your mouth. My friends and I kept taking the free samples til the point the salesperson took them away.
