nozawa onsen ski and stay package

Explore a little deeper into Japan’s culture and skiing

Want to step a little deeper into Japanese culture? Nozawa Onsen is a world apart: Twisting, narrow streets wind  back and forth among tiny shops stocked with everything from the latest skis to fresh produce, yukata robes, and sugary delicatessen treats.  Precipitous steps lead up into sacred cedar groves and glorious wooden temple complexes. At night time, Nozawa really looks its mysterious best as the sulphurous steam wreathes the town and shop windows glow through the gloom.
