Where to stay in Zhoushan

Perched beneath the foothills of several soaring mountains, the town of Minakami-machi provides a picturesque stepping stone from which to explore the dramatic surrounding scenery. Buzzing with ski activity in season (December to March), the town draws Tokyo residents looking to escape the crush of city life. That said, Minakami-machi remains relatively undiscovered among the international tourist set, despite its three surrounding mountain peaks. In the warmer months, Minakami-machi vacations still offer a wealth of options: from canoeing in the national park, to the dozens of onsens, you can get out into nature at your own pace.
