Exactly. As I said in my previous post, other than Yuzawa you need to budget at least 1/2 day from each way for travel from/to Tokyo.e
There is really not many places that offer both boarding and touristy sights. Better to split your trip into a sightseeing and a boarding portion - if the boarding portion is 3 days or less (including travel) then Yuzawa is your best choice; if it is 4 days or longer you can start to consider Nagano or Hokkaido.
Understand, ill split my trip up, boarding for one week in one location. Im not too keen on travelling between several mountains. If one/two mountains are ok, ill stick with it (if its worth it)
Then second half, just travel around Japan - relax and do all the tourist things.
With 7 days the world is your oyster, come to rusutsu and Ill show you around as Ill be there solo too
7 days is enough isn't it? ...
I went to NZ recently, did 6 days on the mountain and that was perfect. Anymore and it because draining
Where a bouts are you from? Im from Aus. Definitely take up your offer when there!
Question: where do you stay in Japan? on the mountain, near the mountain or in town?
