    If I'm not mistaken, milk here is whole unless written otherwise. 低脂肪 this is the kanji for low fat. Usually the low fat milk is cheaper. I also think most milk is local at grocery stores. I've moved a few times or visited friends and looked at the milk choices. The brand names are always different depending where I am. I have noticed at one if my supermarkets I go, beisie, there is vitamin fortified. It's a very colorful packaging with vitamins written all over it.

    I think you are looking for 無調整牛乳, in direct translate mean "unadjusted milk" aka whole milk.

    @KevinC im not positive, but I think 無調整牛乳 is non-homogenized milk, its not referring to the fat content, which whole milk is. I mean, its likely still whole milk though, unless indicated otherwise with 低脂肪 low fat, or 無脂肪 nonfat. That was what I understood from an article about 無調整牛乳

    The kanji is 全乳, but in Japan, most milk you can buy are unmodified 成分無調整牛乳 with 3.6% fat, which most people consider whole milk. These are about 70% of the milk you can pick up easily. Otherwise, the package would say 成分調整牛乳 which is modified and typically with lower fat, except for the 4.5% extra fat milk you can find. Side note: the best-tasting milk in Japan are from Hokkaido 北海道 so try for look for them if you can :)

Best onsen town near Tokyo with a lot of snow

Looking for recommendations for a nice onsen town / resort near Tokyo where I can see plenty of snow. Planning to go in February. It would be an overnight stay. Also, if the town has a bit of atmosphere and places to eat other than the hotel / ryokan, that would be even better. Cheers! Maybe around 3 hrs one-way (without flying) would be the maximum travel time in this case.
