Good powder, a range of runs that will test all levels and a laid back vibe. Hakuba is easily accessible from Tokyo (by train and bus from Nagano).

It seems the Hakuba area is made up of a number of different small ski resorts none of which are interconnected. The snow quality is great but the terrain is not like the larger ski resorts in Europe or the US

The gondola from Escal Plaza took us right to the top where we spent the day skiing/snow boarding on some fairly easy runs. 360 degree views of incredible mountains and you could see right down to the valley below.
