Welcome to NozawaHotels.com.
Your guide to the Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort.
Not only is Nozawa Onsen a world class ski resorts,
but it is one of the most popular hot spring resort
towns in Japan, and on January 15th each year is also site of one of Japan's most
famous festivals, the Nozawa Hi Matsuri.
A real mix of modern and traditional Japan, Nozawa
Onsen offers something for everyone. The town center has
lots of small Japanese restaurants, bars, and other
places to experience Japanese cuisine and culture.
The village also has something else that is slowly
disappearing in Japan, the "Soto-Yu". These small
bathhouses, 13 in all, are dotted around the village,
and are open to anyone. They are free to use, although
there is a donation box at each one to help offset the
running costs. These are a place to get to know people,
as both tourists and the local residents use them.
Accommodation in Nozawa
Onsen is almost all Ryokan Style, and one of the charms
of that village is that there are no large chains hotels
in the village.
While Nozawa Onsen is a large ski resort in itself,
there is no need to limit yourself to only 1 resort. The
resorts of Togari Onsen, and Madarao Kogen are within
easy reach and can be done as day trips out of Nozawa.
Getting to Nozawa Onsen is now easier than ever with
Nagano Snow Shuttle offering direct daily services
from Narita Airport.
So what are you waiting for. Great Skiing, Great
Experiences, Great times.
