Niseko

Niseko on the northernmost island of Hokkiado is Japan's premier skiing destination. As well as having some of the most reliable light powder snow even into March, it has dozens of kilometres of green, blue and black runs to suit all skiers. The villages of Grand Hirafu and Niseko as well as some more scattered accommodation huddle at the base of mighty Annapuri mountain.  Access to all the routes is easy as the main ski lifts all join at the top, and shuttle buses run regularly around the base. After a day on the slopes, relax with a sake or perhaps a local Sapporo beer in the convivial atmosphere of the villages. There are many more English menus and English-speaking staff than is common in Japan, making Niseko not just a world class resort but also a very welcoming one.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
