・2.5 hours' direct and hassle-free transportation to Asahiyama Zoo, Biei and Furano area en route back to Sapporo.<br><br>・Sufficient time to visit one of Japan's most popular zoo, and encounter with the lovely animal buddies!<br><br>・Grasp Hokkaido's seasonal beauty on the undulating flowery slope and feel jovial breathing the fresh air on this vast land. <br><br>・View the signature trees “Ken&amp;Mary”, "Seven Star" that used to be filmed in TV commercial hits! <br><br>・A closer look at the sublime Blue Pond (Aoi-Ike) which shows an appearance different from cold times. <br><br>・Also drop by the fairy tale like cottages in tranquil forests and have an opportunity to see craft-man work or buy your souvenirs.

We were a group of 2 in our early thirties, one who was a complete beginner and the other one had some experience though minimal. Jann was with us for the first day and on the second day, we split and had individual lessons. Jann was very patient who went all the way to teach and make sure we had the basics right. Simone gave clear instructions and also challenged me to try out some tricks which I never thought I would be able to do. By the end of the 3-hour lesson, I was able to go down the green slopes confidently by myself. It was a great experience and I'm looking forward to my next ski experience. Would return to Furano and engage FISS again!

Shout out to Carlo. Great coach. Will return if given the chance. Slightly pricier than the other ski schools but convenient for non Japanese speakers.

We tried another ski school in Niseko a couple of years ago and were terribly disappointed in the quality of teaching. This time at Furano we booked 1.5 days of private lessons with FISS because of the positive reviews here. Best decision we ever made. Our instructor Rachael was the most patient person with a ton of teaching experience. She addressed each of our problems using many examples and exercises to help us improve our skills. She was always encouraging and fun to work with, making the lessons constructive as well as enjoyable. Booking online was very easy. They answered all our questions promptly via email. Very pleased to recommend FISS.

Great snow sport school. I first found skiing scary. I had beginner lessons with the best ski instructor ever, a 22 years old from Melbourne. Georgia helped me to overcome fear and enjoy skiing after 3 days. My husband and our 2 boys had advance level lessons with also a very experienced ski instructor.

Our family booked 2 instructors for a combined 2 full days. Georgia and Jane were both excellent instructor. Very patient and very good at taking care of my family, while I get to explore the mountain. My family loved the experience. On the last day, my 4 years old son was too tired and didn't want to ski, Jane and Georgia was flexible enough to take me and explore the mountain for half a day. It was a lot of work keeping up with a much younger instructor, but I had so much fun that morning. Our family will definitely come back again and chose FISS again.
