  3. Banner  3Nozawa Holidays There is absolutely no sugar coating this, it is horrible weather outside right now. It is snowing at the top of the mountain (freezing point at about 1200m) however you cant actually get there thanks for strong westerly winds shutting down the upper mountain. So if you want to ski or board today it’ll be in the rain. Ill admit it can be awesome skiing in the rain with fast snow on piste but sometimes you just need to take the hint from nature and call in a rest day. Otherwise on the agenda, a soak in one the thirteen free onsens in town. If you can manage all of them with the stamps fr...

Visitor Reviews of Nozawa Onsen

John Clouston from Australia writes:

Just had a wonderful week at Nozawa Onsen 1-9th March 2011. Snow quality was amazing. Over 120 cm of new snow in this week. All light and dry powder. I have skied all over the world and the snow quality here was as good as Utah. People friendly and the food great and inexpensive.
I will be back next year. Like everyone else, myself and family have been saddened and shocked by the earthquake and tsunami that hit North Eastern Japan. Villages Like Nozawa Onsen need support so if you have been to this region then go back again. I know we will.
