In the blink of an eye, autumn is over; autumn and winter intersect with no warning. While the maple leaves still cling to the trees in one city, the snow has already begun to fall in another city, like in the northeastern part of Japan. The weather is colder now, and it’s time to plan winter trips. Couples can go to a winter wonderland to ski, enjoy hot springs, eat good beef, and shop - it’s all right here. If you are planning a couple holiday with your loved one.

This year’s autumn ended quickly, as it always does; before you even finished viewing the autumn leaves in the big parks, you already need to start planning for your ski trip. Otherwise, you might not be able to book hotel rooms, particularly in the surrounding cities where you can go skiing.

This time, http://loveinnjapan.com  wants to share with you some information about skiing and local accommodations through this article.

First of all, we recommend that everyone fly from Taiwan to Osaka; not only does LCC provide frequent service between the two locations, also the flights are often inexpensive and the distance traveled is short. We trust that everyone already knows about some of the more famous skiing locations, but it’s a common misconception that you need to go to a place like Hokkaido - Kobe, in fact, is just fine. Loveinnjapan will recommend a ski resort and suggest some accommodations.

Please continue reading. For example;


Hyogo Prefecture’s  〝Mount Rokko″


Mount Rokko is very close to Arima Onsen, Osaka, and downtown Kobe. From the mountain, you can see the beautiful streetscapes and night views of the Osaka Bay coast.

Enjoy the beautiful wildlife, gourmet dining, and shopping that changes from season to season.

Let’s take a look at an example itinerary.
