Happy Monday morning from Nozawa Onsen
Hope you had a good weekend. Was a big one in Nozawa with the annual Lantern Festival and a good turn out with nice weather and as it fell on the weekend. Lots of locals and visitors alike flowing out on the streets to celebrate in style.
The Festival is held every year on the 8th and 9th of September regardless of which day of the week it is much like the famous Fire Festival which is always on the 15th of January every year. That will also roll around soon enough and is an amazing festival one of the most famous fire festivals in Japan. Here is a link to more information on it
It is also a very busy time of the season in mid January. If you have not already booked then better get your skis on! We can still offer a few options but is getting harder now. Best to book well in advance of want to be in town for the Fire Festival https://www.nozawaholidays.com/bookings/
