Scout Picks: Authentic Ski Towns

Authentic Ski Towns

Jun 13, 2017

Of all the Japanese ski resorts we rate Nozawa Onsen as our favourite ski village. Historic, quaint and lacking in considerable Western development (though not westerners) Nozawa is where you can get a real taste for Japan while enjoying a ski holiday. Relax in one of the village's 12 public onsens or eat eggs cooked in natural hot springs. With dozens of tiny resaurants and a bunch of great bars it's perfect for those wanting to do more than just ski.
