Japan is a country of mountains, with a beautifully rugged landscape stretching the length of its islands in an ever-varying panorama of slopes, peaks, and valleys – scenery that lends itself to skiing, especially at high quality resorts like Nozawa Onsen.
Nozawa Onsen offers an exhilarating ski experience at an affordable price, and is a popular destination both for its skiing possibilities and for the beauty of its snow-decked surroundings.
We’ve got a few tips for you today to help you get the most out of your stay!
Don’t miss the skiing
Nozawa Onsen is a great place to introduce yourself to skiing if you have never done so before. You can get lessons from our friendly staff and enjoy your first experiences in some of the most beautiful, memorable skiing territory in the world. And while it’s perfect for the beginner, Nozawa has plenty to cater to the more experienced skiier too.
But don’t miss anything else either!
Go skiing, but don’t miss out on the other possibilities at the resort, either. Not only does the local village include restaurants and bars where you can sample delicious local fare, but there are also free public hot springs throughout the area.
Be sure to stop in for a restorative soak and let the warmth soak into your bones even in the midst of the snowy winter landscape. These hot springs, or onsen, are a great way to ease your body and relax after a vigorous day on the slopes, and give you a chance to soak up some of the local culture, also.
You don’t have to lug huge bags of ski gear through the airport
You can travel a lot lighter by leaving some or all of your ski equipment at home and renting the necessary equipment at Nozawa Onsen itself. Skis, poles, boards, and various items of necessary clothing for skiing are all available for rental in town. This lets you journey to this superb ski site without the inconvenience of carrying huge bags or getting skis and other equipment through customs. It also leaves you plenty of room in your baggage for when you return home – so you can feel free to buy clothing, souvenirs, and other intriguing items during your trip to Japan, without lessening your fun on the slopes.
