Hokkaido hotspots Niseko and Furano receive very fine powder during the early winter months, considered by some to be among the best in the world. Annie Fast of TransWorld Snowboarding noted that "Of all the resorts and mountains I've visited around the world, my experiences snowboarding in Japan are on the top of my list. I can't say enough about the unbelievable powder snow, the amazing food, the friendly locals, and the real mountain culture I've experienced there. No doubt, I recommend a winter trip to Japan frequently and fervently."
