Situated in the Gunma Prefecture in Japan, Tenjindaira is a backcountry lover’s paradise. Often overlooked in favor of other Japanese resorts, this area is free of big crowds but offer a lot of good powder.
Take a lift from the Tenjindaira Ski Area into the sidecountry and backcountry. Visit Mt Tanigawa for some epic downhills runs. There is quite a bit of avalanche risk in this area so going with an experienced guide is essential for safety.
Weather can be extreme here particularly in the winter months. Expect cold temperatures and heavy snowfall.
Fly to Tokyo then take the bullet train to Minakami.
