Nozawa Onsen


NozawaJapan Oldest Ski Resort

Blanketed in snow, Nozawa Onsen has retained its old world charm and culture and offers authentic Japanese inns, cobble stone streets and natural hot springs.

Featuring amazing traditional architecture, temples, shrines, hot springs, ryokans and free foot baths are found along many of its streets.

There are over 30 natural hot springs supplying water to the traditional Onsens and bath houses.

The mountain itself is shrouded in beech trees, native to Japan, providing tree skiing opportunities for adventurous skiers and boarders. The world’s best powder snow, snow monkeys, Japan’s unique culture and bathing in outdoor hot springs are among the many reasons a Japanese ski holiday is different from any other. Also great for families, our family ski holiday packages to Japan cater for all families and all budgets. Read on to discover why the world’s more adventurous skiers
