When you consider the logistics of traveling with your own ski/boots/poles and/or board/boots, especially if you are traveling with a family, it is a massive effort. It can be a lot easier to leave your own gear at home and hire in the resort.
Japan prides itself on being able to offer quality rental. Take advantage of this, and hire in resort.

If you are really not that keen on the idea of hiring boots, take your own and just rent the skis/board locally.
Still not convinced on rental? There is also a courier service called Takkyubin (Black Cat Couriers). It is an efficient luggage and ski/snowboard delivery system. It is available to and from the Airport as well as most hotels making travel on the Japan Rail network a lot easier as you don’t need to carry your heavy bags up and down platforms and stairs as well as on crowded trains. Takkyubin sends your luggage to anywhere in the country by the next business day (excluding some areas). It is ideal if you are planning to stay in Tokyo for a couple of nights before you go on your ski holiday. Just take what you will need for your Tokyo stay and have the rest of your luggage be at your destination on your arrival.
