Why Choose Furano for your Japan Ski Holiday?

"Furano was an unexpected surprise … really had nothing to go on as none of our mates had been there, but we really enjoyed it … it was real Japanese experience. We really enjoyed eating in Kitanomine village and Furano town for eating out … found some really fantastic local restaurants and prices incredibly good value. The New Prince hotel was great (esp in house onsen and upstairs bar)
