Kagura ski resort is three resorts in one, with the Mitsumata, Kagura and Tashiro areas providing a wide variety of ski runs, from gentle family slopes to the most challenging of advanced-level courses. This resort is also connected to the world-famous Naeba ski resort by the ‘Dragondola’ – the longest gondola in the world at 5.481 meters. This creates the largest ski resort complex in the Japanese Central Alps region, and the area boasts some of the best snow conditions in the country. We guarantee that you will be captivated by the stunning scenery of the surrounding mountain region.
