Kid Heaven: Tokyo Disney Resort® and 3 days skiing
Are you looking for a family ski holiday with a dash of Disney magic? Over 3 nights, base yourself at the NASPA New Otani Resort in the Niigata prefecture. A skiers-only resort, NASPA Ski Garden enjoys heavy, consistent snowfall each season. Have little kids in tow? The Pingu-themed kids’ park is sure to delight them and boost their confidence.
This tour caters to complete beginners. Your lift pass, skis and clothing are all included, and a licensed English speaking instructor will teach you everything you need to know. It’s skiing made easy and hassle-free.
We begin in Tokyo, where you’ll experience the best theme parks in the world at the Tokyo Disney Resort®. The next day you’ll be whisked from the streets of Tokyo to the pristine ski fields of Yuzawa via bullet train!
Consider this Yuzawa particularly if you have little skiers with you. The gentle slopes and facilities designed for kids are hard to beat.
With lift passes, skis and clothing hire for the family included – all you need is a sense of adventure!
Learn to ski the right way with a fully certified English-speaking instructor.
You’ll learn all the techniques and tricks you’ll need to be comfortable exploring the slopes of Yuzawa.
Let the kids enjoy the fun of the snow at the kids’ park located right in front of the hotel. Here they can play in a safe, enclosed area with various snow tubes and sleds.

After a long day of skiing, what could be better than having a deep soak in an onsen (hot spring) to relieve your aching muscles? Your accommodation offers both outdoor and indoor onsen.
Your hotel accommodation is Ski-in/Ski-out. Enjoy direct access to the ski lifts just 50m from your hotel. Don’t waste a moment catching transportation to and from the mountain – it’s a minimum hassle with maximum time on the slopes.
Take the high-speed “Toki” shinkansen train between Tokyo and Echigo Yuzawa. It’s just 80 minutes from the city to the mountain!
After arriving at Daiwa Roynet Hotel Tokyo Ariake, be greeted by our Kintetsu representative, who’ll assist you with checking in.*
We recommend exploring Ariake Garden, an entertainment and shopping complex close to the hotel. The complex boasts hundreds of shops, a kids play area and over 50 restaurants.
Rest up and get ready for five days packed with adventure!
*Please arrive at the hotel by 3 pm.
It’s Disney time! This tour offers the flexibility of letting your family choose between a day at Tokyo Disneyland® or Tokyo DisneySea®. Whichever park you choose, you’ll enjoy a “must-see” Disney experience combined with first-class Japanese hospitality.
Tokyo Disneyland® is the first Disney Park built outside of the US. It is modelled closely after the original parks in California. Recommended if you want the classic Disneyland experience and haven’t been to the parks in the US and have younger kids.
Tokyo DisneySea® is the second park at the resort. With more rides aimed at slightly older kids and different lands to see, we recommend DisneySea if you’ve already visited the parks in the US and have older kids.
Whichever park you choose, you’ll enjoy a “must-see” Disney experience combined with first-class Japanese hospitality.
A private mini-bus will take you to this unforgettable experience.
After a day of Disney magic, make your way back to the hotel by local train with the prepaid IC cards provided.
Just take the essentials with you to Yuzawa and enjoy the freedom of packing light! You can leave the rest of your luggage at your Tokyo hotel when checking out.
Your private mini-bus will take you to Tokyo Station, where you’ll board the iconic shinkansen (bullet train) bound for Echigo Yuzawa station, Niigata. A historical hot spring resort town, the area is also known for producing sake. Step off the train and breathe in the fresh mountain air!
Your resort hotel is a quick transfer from the station (approx. 10 min).
In the evening, enjoy an included buffet dinner at the resort.
After breakfast, it’s time to take your first steps into the world of skiing! An English-speaking instructor will start your family on the right track with a 2-hour ski lesson, teaching you all the basics to give you the confidence to explore.
In the afternoon, put your new skills to the test and start to explore the slopes on your own.
Your first day of skiing is bound to result in sore muscles. So take advantage of the resort’s indoor onsen (hot spring), where you can relax and reflect on a fantastic day.
With a little training under your belt, it’s time to head out and try your new skills on the mountain. There’s no pressure; take it slow and steady!
First, familiarise yourself with the trails of the mountain. We recommend the trails marked with a green dot. That indicates they’re designed for beginners. The other trails are for more advanced skiers – perhaps on your next holiday!
There’s nothing better than exploring the snowy landscape with your family. You can take in the views together, laugh at each other when you fall and help each other get back up again. Skiing is a great bonding experience – no matter what your skill level is.
After a massive day on the mountain, you’re sure to be exhausted. Enjoy an included farewell buffet dinner at the hotel and relax (and maybe have another soak in the onsen!)
By now, we hope you’re hooked on skiing and the beauty of the pristine ski fields of Japan. Good news – there’s time for one final morning session of skiing before heading back to Tokyo in the afternoon.
The complimentary hotel bus will take you back to Echigo Yuzawa station to board the bullet train bound for Tokyo.
You’ll return to your hotel via private taxi, where you can collect your stored luggage before checking in for your final night.
The tour concludes after breakfast at the hotel.
Enjoy the rest of your trip!
This hotel is easily accessible via Kokusai-Tenjijō Station on the Rinkai Line and Ariake Station on the Yurikamome Line. Enjoy staying in a relaxing, spacious Executive room in the sophisticated Tokyo Ariake area.
