Experience one of two special nighttime snow activities this month with direct access provided from Kinosaki Onsen! Why not have your first snow experience in the oldest ski area in Western Japan?

Enjoy the truly unique experience of riding in a snowcat, which is a snow tractor used to push and flatten snow to make slopes better for skiing. This is a vehicle that guests are normally not allowed to ride, making this experience extra special!

Take in the nighttime slopes from an elegant yet cozy restaurant. Usually only available to hotel clients, you can enjoy a few drinks at Kannabe Highland Hotel. You can even play in the snow just outside the hotel. This activity is perfect for anyone who wants a sampling of winter!
