Located in the Nagano prefecture, Nozawa Onsen is one of the most stunning traditional Japanese resorts in the country. This local-run town still feels like true Japan while having western conveniences. The village has over a dozen free natural hot springs which are the perfect way to end a day on the mountain. Nozawa receives the abundant powder Japan is famous for, with plenty of terrain for beginners, powder chasers and backcountry riders to explore. Nozawa Onsen also has fantastic restaurants and a fun and friendly nightlife with a mix of bars, clubs and classic karaoke dens.
