Info For You

What time and where do we go for child care?

Child care is located at our Myoko Snowsports Village Shop in the Akakura Onsen village. You can see a village map at this link. Daily drop-off is available from 8:15am, and pick-up until 4:15pm. Advanced reservations are essential.

What does child care include each day?

Our child care professional ‘Shige-san’ has many years experience looking after both Japanese and international children of all ages. She will look after your child, play games, read books, draw pictures, play with toys and walk with them around the child care center and Myoko Snowsports shop.
Bookings of 4 or more hours include complimentary lunch. Dietary requirements can be catered to.

How many children can Shige-san look after at once?

This depends on the age of the children. For younger children (6 months to 1.5 yrs) she will general look after 2 or 3 at once max. For older children she can look after a couple more.

My child is 3 years old, do you recommend child care or your mini mountaineers ski program?

The mini mountaineers ski lesson program is for children from 3 years old, and is available either morning or full-day. Many 3 year olds get tired quickly while skiing, and so one good option is to book them in for the morning Mini Mountaineers program (9:30am to 1:30pm including lunch) and then child care for the afternoon.

Can my child have a nap while at child care?

Yes of course. Bedding facilities and a cot are available for naps.

Do your carers speak English?

Basic English is spoken by our child care professional Shige-san. Despite not speaking fluent English all children love her, and she is able to communicate with them. Myoko Snowsports bi-lingual shop staff are also always on-hand to assist you with questions or information as required.

Should I book in advance?

We recommend booking well-prior to your arrival to ensure availability. Please contact our team at if you have any questions.
