About Furano

Furano Ski Resort is located in central Hokkaido, quite far from Sapporo but only about 60km south of Asahikawa – so the best way to get there is to fly to Asahikawa and take a coach transfer of just about an hour.
Furano gets about 9 metres of snow per season on average, which is less than some of the coastal Hokkaido ski resorts such as Niseko and Rusutsu. This actually means that the weather is better than in those places, with more blue sky. And the powder is generally delightfully light and fluffy – this is what Hokkaido skiing is all about!

The Furano ski resort has very well developed amenities and services, but unlike some Japan ski resorts, Furano doesn’t feel too much like a resort. The nearby town of Furano itself has an authentic feel, and both the town and resort provide good facilities for English-speaking guests, without losing the essence of Japan, and there are plenty of Japanese restaurants.
The town has a good range of accommodation, from hotels to pensions and apartments, and it’s generally cheaper than Niseko. The accommodation offers good value for money, and kids 12 and under ski free.

A family-friendly resort

Furano is quite special in that it can cater for English-speaking families with children. Child-care is available with English-speaking staff, and ski lessons for children are available with English-speaking instructors.
Furano also has various other family friendly activities on offer, such as snowmobiling, onsen tours, ice hole fishing, or even dressing up in a kimono!
