A fantastic option for families looking for an easy ski option outside Tokyo, Hakuba has been a long time favorite. A village in the Japanese Alps, just outside the city of Nagano, this resort played host to the 1998 Winter Olympics. Now, it has developed into a place where families come to enjoy good food, stay in a ryokan or chalet with friends, and enjoy skiing and other non-ski activities too. Take a journey and check out the best of Hakuba with kids.
