Sapporo Kokusai is found just 60 minutes drive from the centre of Sapporo City. It is a small-to-medium sized resort offering a nice mixture of riding opportunities for local shredders and alike. Kokusai was one of the first Resorts in Japan to actively encourage snowboarding. Japanese riders that want to do a season without the hassle of moving to a resort often take a part time job in Sapporo and spend their free time riding here.

Kokusai pow, Rider Keith StubbsKokusai maintain a decent park and often have a BoarderX track too. The course map only shows 6 runs in total, however the map’s perspective is rather poor and the courses are actually a lot longer than they first appear. Much like the resort of Kiroro, Sapporo Kokusai gets well and truly dumped on during the winter months granting many a powder day.
