Beatriz,

I'm also living in Tokyo (but lived in Hokkaido for more than two and a half years). I've been meaning to take a day out around Jimbocho (the Tokyo neighborhood for buying snowboard/ski gear) to check out the 2013 snow wares. If you fancy joining me, I could give you all of the information I know about Hokkaido.

My favorite skiing areas are Niseko, Kamui, and Kurodake. Teine in Sapporo is also great if you duck under the barriers and take it off-piste.

What is your skill level?

My email is j.t.quigley@gmail.com, you will probably get a quicker reply if you mail me directly!

Cheers,

Jeff
