Any good sites for accommodation - or would the google be of best use depending on locale.
Try lookin at an agents site like Deep Powder Tours, then once ya work out the place/s ya wanna stay, do some research to find the best deals you can get!!!!!

* Deep Powder can sometimes match prices that you'll research yaself, so it can sometimes be worth usin them once ya wrangle a good deal!!!!!

The flights would be the same I imagine, it would either be direct or both would need a transit at another Asian country.
Got ya! Yeah, pretty much needing to decide where I want to start/end and which group of mountains to hit (Hokkaido or Nagano).

Scenario 1: Fly into Sapporo, do Rusutu & Niseko for 1-2 weeks. Bus/fly down to Tokyo to cap of the last 3-4 days and fly out from there.

Scenario 2: Fly to Tokyo, Mess around for a few days; Train/bus to Nagano for 1-2weeks. Train/bus back to Tokyo to round up the trip and fly out.

Scenario 3: Fly into Tokyo, stay for a few days. Bus/fly up to Sapporo and spend the remaining time at Rusutu & Niseko.

Starting to sound more feasible?
Yep!!!!!

And with 3-4 days in Tokyo, make sure ya Takkyubin ya gear either to ya Accomo or to the departing airport so ya don't have to lug ya stuff around the city!!!!!

tokyo_dom You planning on doing a bunch of BC riding?

If you are planning on staying mostly in bounds, it might get a little samey staying that long in one area. Not sure about you, but i love variety in riding. I went 15 or so times this season (all one or 2 day trips), only one place i visited more than once (Kagura). I think i would probably get fairly bored spending 2-3 weeks in one area; but then it has been a long time since i have done a long boarding trip. So for me I would do 1 week in each, separated by a visit to Tokyo
