Naeba Trails

Directly in front of the 1,224-room Naeba Prince Hotel sits Naeba Ski Resort which offers an exciting ski field designed for the whole family. There are fun beginner trails for children, challenging trails for advanced skiers, as well as terrain parks for all level riders. At night, the trails in front of the hotel are beautifully illuminated for night skiing. However, the fun doesn’t stop at Naeba, as the 5.5 km Dragondola, Japan's longest gondola, connects Naeba with the neighbouring Kagura Ski Resort. Together the two resorts form “Mt. Naeba”. Kagura offers another large ski resort with numerous runs, expansive terrain parks, and amazing backcountry terrain.
