Time for a breather and a chat
Nozawa Onsen is a traditional old Japanese village offering its guests old-fashioned Japanese hospitality.
Famous for its hot springs since the 8th Century, Nozawa Onsen has 30 distinct mineral springs feeding 13 public bath houses or ryokans.
There are some great powder runs between the marked trails if you are an experienced skier looking for a more challenging run. On a clear day you can see the northern Japanese Alps and the Sea of Japan from the peak of Mt. Kenashi-yama.
