Nozawa Onsen is a beautiful ski resorts with cobble stone streets, onsens and an English speaking ski school.

Nozawa has old world charm mixed with modern Japan. There are 5 public onsens for relaxing weary bones after a day of skiing the excellent snow.

Most of the accommodation is in the village of Nozawa Onsen so there is a bit of walking and a travelator to get up to the ski run.

The mountain has long cruisy runs characterized by wide open groomers. Nozawa Onsen suits beginners and intermediates really well. It is a busy ski resort that can get really busy especially on weekends where lift queues can be 20-30 minutes. If you can visit here during the week or out of school holiday times the crowds are smaller.

You can find some really nice areas of tree skiing but they do get tracked out pretty quickly. If you are into tree skiing and untracked runs head to Madarao as Nozawa does not condone tree skiing across most of the resort and they will confiscate passes if they catch you.
