Happy Sunday from Nozawa Onsen.
Still a few people wandering the streets from Onsen Bath to Onsen in their Summer Yukattas. Always beautiful to see.
This is Kawahara Yu one of my favourite little hot springs right in the centre of town. Magnificent wooden traditional feel wth high ceilings but still very cosy. Can get a sneaky draft beer for just 350 yen over the road after at Yamazaki Convenience store or an Ice cream for just 100Yen.
The snowy shot was taken very early December quite a few years ago now. We can get those stealth dumps sometimes early in the season and the whole landscape can change overnight. The Onsens in Nozawa are perfect to enjoy all year round so be sure to indulge when visit next to Nozawa.
