Experience Nozawa Onsen Village in a modern, self-contained apartments
with a countryside farmhouse style. Nozawa Onsen Basecamp is an
apartment building with mainly 2 bedroom apartments, common area
laundry, gear room, and lounge/playroom, and is located in the heart of
the village, very conveniently halfway between Oyu Onsen and Nagasaka
Gondola in a quiet spot nestled up against the mountain.
For skiers and boarders, only 200 meter walk to the main gondola in
one direction and 200 meters to the escalator that goes to the ski
school, main Hikage bowl area and the other gondola there. Restaurants,
cafes, bars and nightlife, shopping, onsen hopping and the bustle of
the village area all just steps away from the building, and the village
itself is a great location to see the region.
Nozawa Onsen is a great `basecamp` for exploring the great outdoor and
cultural areas of the Japan Northern Alps, from Nagano on the West to
Joetsu / Niigata on the East, Yuzawa and Shiga Kogen on the North to
Nojiri Lake on the South. Inbetween you will find cultural towns of
Obuse, Suzaka, Nagano, Tokamachi, castle ruins and temples in Joetsu and
Iiyama, and many quaint and hidden villages deep in the snow country
such as Nozawa Onsen and Akiyamago.
Famous ski resorts and winter play
abound, and the green season provides a much wider range of outdoor
activities on the rivers, lakes, mountains and sea. The mountain spring
water is fresh and untainted, the variety of local cuisine gives
pleasure at every meal, and the people are sincere, hardworking, and
very happy to make your stay an enriching and enjoyable experience.
apartments are fully furnished and self-contained two bedroom units
with fit-out kitchens, appliances and crockery, bathrooms with high-tech
Japanese toilet, shower, towels and toiletries, and tatami bedrooms
and traditional futon or western beds, non-allergenic bedding and
fine linens and warm quilts to finish off the traditional stay in good
comfort. We believe the village environment is refreshing to the soul,
and we invite you to awaken to the `slow life` experience of ancient
times that is still alive here.
