Ski so many days not boring?
Different people different likes I guess. For this trip my wife and I took lessons, and the ski school recommended 4x 1/2 days, so that's sort of why we spent so much time ski'ing.

1. How did you go back to the hotel after skiing? Was transportation provided or you had to arrange on your own?
2. Did you rent ski gear from the hotel? How much?
We rented ski gear from the ski school. The ski's they allowed us to store at the foot of the base ski lift, so we only had to carry our ski boots to-and-from the hotel (change at the base of the ski lift).
Our hotel was around 10mins walk from the slopes, so we just walked.
In Japan, there are (generally) 2 kinds of ski places. The purpose-built resorts have a HUGE hotel right at the base of the mountain, so at the end of the day you ski down to the hotel doorstep and just go inside. The 2nd kind is a village that so happened to be at the base of the ski mountain. These ones there is normally very little ski-in/ski-out accommodation, so you normally need to do quite a bit of walking, but on the flip side it feels more "authentic" Japan, I guess ...

all the comments for toyosu market in tripadvisor are negative
Haha I guess eventually I'll update the thread with Toyosu market but yes. As a market it's probably a much better place, but as a tourist attraction it really really sucks ass now. I'd go so far as to say it's not worth visiting anymore.This post has been edited by deodorant: Feb 17 2019, 03:53 PM
