Skiers-only snow resort   Yuzawa, Niigata, Japan


Kids - and their parents too - love NASPA Ski Garden!

There are some good reasons for that including 'Pingu', NASPA Kids Garden, ski lessons specially suited for children and Pingu Ski Room... here we introduce some of the reasons why kids love NASPA!


The popular Pingu character and friends spend their winter at NASPA Ski Garden.

In fact, it is the only ski resort in Japan where you can meet Pingu!

Pingu makes regular appearances at NASPA and children enjoy the general Pingu theme at the resort.

The NASPA Kids Garden is a popular play area surrounded by a fence located near the hotel at the base of the resort. 

Small children can play in the snow at NASPA Kids Garden in a safe environment.

NASPA Kids Garden Pingu Kids Room Game Corner

Items including snowsleds are available to play with in this special area. If the children are learning to ski, why not take some ski lessons in English?  (Or Japanese if you like!). More information on ski lessons can be found here.

There are also a number of facilities within the adjoining NASPA New Otani hotel that help both children and their adults enjoy a day at NASPA.
