Restaurant booking advice Nozawa
When dining out in Nozawa Onsen during busy season, it can often be difficult to find a space in the popular spots!
I’d recommend getting in early – most people eat around 7pm so head to that restaurant you’ve been thinking about all day while out skiing at 6pm instead!
You can also book ahead! Many of the restaurants here have seasonal English speaking workers so you can stop by and book in person, give them a call or message their social media!
Another idea is to get off the main drag! The restaurants on Oyu Doru Street are easily accessible which means they get crowded very quickly. Instead, go for an explore off the beaten track!
We’ve put together a longer list of tips here to help you dine at some of the most delicious places to eat in town.

Cloud coverage most of the day with scatted light snow showers delivering us just over 10cm of snow high up.
Tomorrow should bring more snow fall throughout the day with negative temperatures, including a wind chill down to -26 degrees so definitely bring extra layers up the mountain. We should see just under 40cm of new snow by Saturday morning! The forecast at the moment shows more snow incoming over the weekend – 20cm for Saturday and a white Christmas with another 20cm forecast for Sunday!
We’ll keep you updated so check back tomorrow for the most recent forecast information!
