Nozawa Onsen, Nozawaonsen-mura

4.7
#1 of 404 in Baths in Chubu
Ski Area Onsen Resort
Considered the birthplace of skiing in the country, Nozawa Onsen opened in 1924 and still manages to keep up with the times, fitted with modern high-speed lifts, two gondolas, and long, fast runs. With slopes and environments for all abilities and disciplines, the park offers lessons, laid-back beginner runs, intense 39-degree speed slopes, half pipes, and moguls. Pathfinders looking for fresh powder can expect 10 m (32.8 ft) of snowfall here a season, with new deliveries never far away. After all that, soothe your aching muscles in the natural onsen at the base of the mountain. Make Nozawa Onsen part of your personalized Nozawaonsen-mura itinerary using our Nozawaonsen-mura family vacation planner.
