Go To Travel Nagano Ski & Snowboard Package Trip : Japan
***At this moment, the Go To Travel campaign in Japan is suspended until further notice. We can take reservations for future trips and reconfirm them once it is clear when the campaign will resume.
Do you want to get away from the city for a bit? Why not take advantage of the Go To Travel discounts that give you up to 50% off on your trip to go on a skiing or snowboarding holiday? There has never been a better time to enjoy winter sports in Japan than now. Take the opportunity while the campaign lasts, because Japan’s slopes will be quieter than ever while the foreign tourists who love the endless pistes of Nagano so much can’t travel to Japan. Whether you are a total beginner or a winter sports pro, you will have a great time in some of Japan’s best winter sports areas in Nagano!
Please note that this campaign is only available for residents of Japan. For an extensive overview of how the Go To Travel system works, please read this article.
