Located towards the Northern end of the Hakuba Valley between Iwatake and Norikura ski areas, Tsugaike is the perfect place for beginners learning to ski and for those just getting into backcountry skiing and snowboarding.
The Tsugaike village stretches across the base of the ski hill (Lower Tsugaike) and runs alongside the piste run at the northern edge of the ski area (Upper Tsugaike).
Given the wide base of the hill, the village offers a number of traditional style ski in / ski out lodges and modest slopeside hotels.
Groups of friends and multiple families travelling together are well served by the wonderfully spacious and aptly named Slopeside Chalet, located on the side of the ski run where Upper and Lower Tsugaike meet.
Tsugaike village has retained its character and is well suited to visitors seeking a Japanese experience in a sleepy village setting.
