A beautiful winter wonderland! I have never seen so much snow before! The free shuttle bus took us up to the manor, then you go up to the 5th floor and ride the tube diwn the snow. This was so exciting wish someone coukd have taken a photo for me! They also let us look around the inside of this beautiful manor. very friendly staff. You can hire ski equipment. We only had to pay a ¥300 deposit and ¥10 and hour to ski. There are 4 ski slopes from beginner to advanced.
