Parts of Hakuba have received close to 180cm of snow in seven days, with approximately a meter of that coming in 48 hours. In Niseko they are reporting 140cm in seven days, bringing their season total to 311cm of accumulative snowfall. On a global snow scale, Japan is killing it, delivering the wintry goods when many parts of Europe and North America are high and dry. If you haven’t already, book your holiday NOW!
