You can also rent equipment necessary to go skiing and snowboarding. In the off-season from April to October, you can enjoy views of the night sky from the Shizukuishi Ginga Ropeway.

    紅葉の始まりで岩手山の景観が素晴らしかった。から松コースを回ったがOUTは少し狭くまたトリッキーなホールもあり手強かった。グリーンもアンジュレーションが強く芝目も効いているので難しかった。フェアウェーは夏の暑さのせいでところどころ傷みが目立ったが、状態が良ければ良いコースかと思う。

    網張温泉スキー場に行った際にランチで利用しました。 いわゆるゲレ食でメニューの種類は少なかったです。 オーダーしたのは雫石牛コロッケとカレーの組み合わせ。 カレーは唐辛子を入れたらコロッケの甘味とカレーの味とうまくあって結構おいしかったです。 現金のみで館内は全席禁煙です。

    Iwate Pref. Kitakamishi Wagachouiwasakishinden
    This is a ski resort in Kitakami City Iwate Prefecture. The resort has one of the richest snowfalls in the Tohoku region and skiers can enjoy a long season of powder snow. Every year many visitors come to the resort from both within and outside the prefecture. There are a total of 14 unique slopes. For skiers who love powder snow we recommend the non-compacted snow course where the best powder snow can be enjoyed during snowy weather. There is a food court which offers a wide selection such as curry and ramen noodles rental shops and a childcare facility. Also there is a large outdoor natural hot spring bath called the “Usagimori no yu” and it is pleasing to have many facilities in one complex.

    春スキーで訪問。雪の量も十分でとても楽しめました。近くに温泉もあってアフターも楽しめました。また是非行きたいです。

Iwate Areas

around-area-map

A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region’s delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you’ll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
