Located between Myoko Kogen and Nozawa Onsen, Madarao is an easy day trip from either resort. Alternatively lodging options do exist in Madarao itself, and there’s plenty more to explore there than can be achieved in a single day trip. With a vertical drop of 440 metres, and 30 trails, Madarao might be considered a medium sized resort for Japan’s standards. It also shares the mountain with neighbouring Tangram resort, with both joined at the top of the ridge at some 1392 metres from sea level (a spectacular view).

The resorts liberal approach to off-piste skiing and their heavy glading of runs, makes it a popular, albeit undiscovered powder skiing destination. There also exists some interesting sidecountry and backcountry terrain.
