Nozawa Onsen BaseCamp Furnished Apartments 野沢温泉ベースキャンプ 大湯地区のウィークリーマンション

We enjoyed the Night Lantern Festival put on at the Nozawa Onsen Snow Resort in the Hikage bowl area last evening. There were some performances with fire dancing and lanterns. Then the resort groom team showed off their skills with lights leading the way. The history of skiing in Japan was dramatized with actual demonstration of styles in period costume coming down the hill in chronological order, finishing with some current demonstrators from Nozawa and guests from the Austria Ski Academy - very impressive!

I was able to participate with my daughter and her friend in the finale performance of torches coming down the hill in procession with all the lights out, creating an awe-inspiring atmosphere. This picture captures our typical nozawa kids’ local lifestyle - hanging out with friends playing games on piste for an hour while waiting for the signal to bring the torches down. We are really blessed to live in such a unique village!
