Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort

Reviewed By daveskiss - Doreen, Australia

If you want an experience that includes something other than snow skiing this is your destination. The village dates back to the Edo Period in Japan’s past. There are lots of interesting places to eat. Being an hot Springs area there are plenty of public and private Onsens to indulge you.

Ogama

Reviewed By Scruffy A - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Ogama sping is the onsen with the hottest water reaching 90 C. In winter, the steam rising from boiling hot spring gives the place a somewhat otherworldly beauty. The onsen is used by the village to boil eggs and vegetables. While tourists can not cook food in there, there is a small place next to it where you can boil your breakfast eggs. It takes about 20 minutes for the eggs to be ready - so you have time to take a quick soak in one of the public bath houses - the onsen cooked eggs are delicious, which the egg white soft and the yolk firm.

Japan Ski Museum

Reviewed By Consu18

Definitely worth going there for a visit, there are an impressive number of items exposed of great historical value. The only suggestion would be for the staff/ owners to keep it warmer inside and also to add more English translations for the relevant pieces, as the Japanese ones are very interesting and rich in information. There is also a great exhibition of ski in Europe in the 1920s and 30s! A must do on everyone's list. Tip - be careful as the last entry is at 3.45pm and if you take the Shinyu Chair lift down to the village the last one is at 4.30pm.

Oborozukiyo no Yakata Hanzan Bunko

Reviewed By Poonopolous - Melbourne

We had a few hours before our return trip to Narita, so we visited this museum. Interesting Museum just up from the main street. A couple of floors of old Japanese art of surrounding towns/maps. A great video presentation about the Fire Festival with many personal interviews of the participants where you could see their enthusiasm. The main theme is about a Japanese Song Writer (poet). The poems were translated into English. None of the other exhibits or presentation had english. For 300 yen, was an interesting way to spend the time learning about the area.
