Nozawa Onsen is already firmly on the radar for many people in Winter for the ski season, but it is also an amazing place to visit and enjoy in Summer during the Green Season.
The village and surrounding mountains come alive with outdoor activities, festivals and farming. You can take the gondola up with your mountain bike then ride down, enjoying the views and mountain trails.
