Myoko City, of Niigata Prefecture, is home to Myoko Kogen, a mountain resort where guests can enjoy skiing, hot springs, mountain climbing, and other activities in nature year-round.
Thanks to the opening of Jetsu Myoko Station off of the Hokuriku Shinkansen in March 2015, access to Myoko Kogen from Tokyo has become very convenient!
From Imori Pond, where wild skunk cabbages grow, and “Naena Falls,” part of Japan’s top 100 waterfalls, to “Koya Pond,” ranked #31 on CNN’s list of most beautiful places in Japan, and the “Myoko Kogen Sky Cable” that connects Shin-Akakura Onsen and Mount Myoko, the area boasts many ways to enjoy the beauty of nature.
