Iwatake is just next to Tsugaike and seems like it could be grouped into either the Otari Valley or the Hakuba valley. Either way you look at it, there is a lot of snow and it is a resort surrounded by more resorts.  

“by the sound of the name Iwatake, you can be sure your experience here will be authentic Japanese ”
 

Iwatake is a small ski area but its setting just outside of the more popular Hakuba village keeps the price down as well as crowds. Iwatake offers some of the best views of the Japanese Alps, making a walk off the top of the resort well worth the effort even if you are waiting for snow.

Iwatake has held on to a more traditional Japanese atmosphere than most of the other villages and resorts in the valley. There are still many small family run accommodations, or "minshuku," in Iwatake and this enhanced cultural experience is still just minutes from some of Japan's premier resorts.

A little culture boost with a panorama of Japan's most awe-inspiring peaks.
