Where can i find snow around Decemeber 20?

I'm coming from the island of Guam and bringing my family to experience Japan for the first time. My boys want to experience snow but no snow sports just building snow angels maybe and snow balls. Where close to Tokyo can I have my kids experience snow?



Hi there,

There are basically two options to find now, either travel up north or go to a mountainous area. The easiest way to find snow reasonable near Tokyo would be to head to Nagano or Nikko. A save bet would be to head to Hakuba in the Nagano prefecture.

I'd advise reading this web page for more information on where to find snow.

Hope this helps,
