If heading up to Nozawa for the ski season and have some little kids then who can take care of them so you can go for a ski is a pretty important thing! Lucky for you Nozawa has a few great options.
During the day hard to beat the Yumin Day Care right on the slopes at the Hikage Ski Centre. You can quite easily access there from all Nozawa Holidays Accommodations by walking or taking the bus to the Nagasaka Gondola then there is a free ski doo drawn sled that runs you up to the Hikage Ski Centre and Kids Park.

Kids Ski Lessons – Child Care Baby Sitting Nozawa Onsen
The other great option is to get the kids on the slopes, that’s what they are here for and the fresh air will tire them out too. From experience have found you can start kids from age 3 onwards and until they are about 5 best to get them private lessons so they can get it quickly and at that age they really need the one on one attention. At any age if they have no prior experience then need a few private lessons to get started.
If 5 Years of age or older and have some experience they can join our kids group lessons and is a great fun experience with professional instructors and other kids, they will be hooked for life. There are up to 6 children with each Instructor and need to do a minimum of 3 days of lessons. You can always take them skiing yourself after the lessons too!
