Skiing in Japan is fun, exciting, and memorable – but it is still worth asking some important questions about your destination before you buy your tickets and book your lodgings. Most ski resorts in Japan are good to excellent, but choosing carefully ensures that you maximize your comfort, fun, and enjoyment.
The top three questions to ask before skiing in Japan are:
What kind of services does the ski resort offer?
The more services the resort offers, the more you are likely to enjoy your stay there. The staff at Nozawa Holidays speak English and are ready to help you in a variety of ways at very affordable rates. You can rent skis, snowboards, and skiing clothing; go out on a tour to see the mountain scenery, or to view the playful snow monkeys found in the vicinity.
How affordable is the ski resort you have chosen?
Nozawa Onsen caters to a wide range of ski enthusiasts, from those who want some thrifty fun on the slopes to those who want a luxurious experience. Lodgings include the highly affordable but very snug Lodge Nagano, with shared rooms for up to four people; Nozawa House, for groups; Villa Nozawa, with family and single rooms; and Nozawa Cottage, with comfortable, self-contained accommodation.
What other activities and attractions are in the area?
Unless you are a complete skiing fanatic who intends to spend every waking instant with a pair of skis strapped to your feet, you should also consider what kinds of interesting things you can do near the ski resort, too. Japan is a fascinating country with a highly distinctive culture and many interesting facets to explore. The village of Nozawa Onsen also has a supermarket, a number of restaurants and bars, and an ATM are available in the village. The principal attraction, however, are the hot springs thickly clustered around the village. Many springs are free to the public, while others are private but accessible for a fee of $10 to $12. Nozawa Onsen is noted for having some of the best “accessory” activities and locations in Japan.
