This photo was taken at Ogama the cooking onsens in Nozawa a few Christmas’s ago.

Christmas in Nozawa is not officially a public holiday as most Japanese are Buddhists so do not celebrate the religious day of Christmas so all the shops, restaurants and ski lifts in Nozawa are open! In Japan in general it is more of a romantic day for couples to get together and also has an increasing commercial side with big shopping centres putting you lights and Christmas trees around the cities. If they get some snow it can be pretty special if not even the fact it is cold makes it pretty unique.
In Nozawa at Nozawa Holidays we like to celebrate Christmas by getting all the guests together and having a celebration drink and doing Secret Santa for anyone interested just check with the staff when checking in around that date. Dont forget to load up on the carrots to make a snow man and feed the hungry Reindeers when they visit!
