Nozawaonsen is a historical onsen resort in Japan. While the winter season sees the biggest influx of visitors who come for the unparalleled skiing, some of our most discerning guests also come during the calmer green season to enjoy the many baths and bucolic rural charm of the region.
With many of its attractions available year round, Nozawaonsen offers more of an all round winter holiday than purely a skiing holiday. It is thus ideal for groups and families comprising skiers and non-skiers. Experience the deep and authentic culture of a village established as a vacation retreat over the centuries for its amazing food, famous hot springs and the renowned fire festival of Nozawaonsen - a living cultural icon of Japan.
Traditional architecture - temples, shrines, hot spring establishments, traditional ryokan and free foot baths are found along many of its streets. Soak your tired feet in one bath while waiting for your onsen eggs to cook in traditional onsen waters!
Even though the village is small, there is a broad range of cuisines available - from well known western-style bars to small hole in the wall shokudo, and of a quality that will please any gourmand. For more information check out Residence Yasushi's Explore the Village section.
