The Kuma Lodge team love Japan, not only for the amazing snow, but also for the rich cultural experiences. We highly recommend that you block off a few days to explore Tokyo either before you hit the slopes, or as a way to unwind and let your muscles recover after a big snow trip!
CN Traveller has put together a great article that highlights some of the the best that Tokyo has to offer – from amazing history to beautiful gardens, world class shopping to Kit-Kat factories – check it out!
