  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

Scott Nolan from Australia writes:

We visited Nozawa Onsen for the first time and stayed halfway up the mountain in a fantastic property called Sasa-Nozawa. It snowed for the whole week we were there, and the powder was so light and dry. Ski patrol tend not to be too anal with skiing OOB .
The food in the village was ever so cheap, we found that we were paying around $60 for 2 for dinner AND drinks.
Also not to missed is one of the many free onsens around the village, they are great to soothe aching muscles after a days skiing.
Nozawa Onsen has something for everyone, and we will definitely be going back next year.
