I'd personally stay away from Alps and Mountainous areas to do any snowshoeing. Hiking scares me enough when there isn't snow and I can see the edges to the precipices that run alongside the paths.

Hokkaido seems the ideal general area for this.

An alternative (I'm sure there are many) would be Yamagata prefecture where you can find
Tozawa village

and the Zao plateau

Both look delightful to me and there's no shortage of onsen resorts in the vicinity
