Scout tips

  • Unless you have a group of 18 it's likely you'll be sharing the building with other groups, though the apartments are all separate
  • Laundry facilities are shared on each floor between all house guests


Kenashi Lodge is a modern, luxurious ski property at the base of Nozawa Ski resort at the Karawawa base. It is ideal for large groups and families. The house is spread over three floors, each with its own apartment. This means that the property can be used as separate apartments or as a whole house that can accommodate up to 18 guests! 

Kenashi has been designed to make the most of its amazing location, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the surrounding mountains. You can even sit back and relax in the lounge as you watch your friends and family head down the slopes. This is particularly good for parents when children can't get enough of the Karasawa ski run but you want a sit down! 

Each of the apartments has a large open-plan living area and fully-equipped modern kitchens as well as comfortable bedrooms (many with ensuite facilities). The Penthouse apartment also boasts an additional tatami mat room which can be used as an additional lounge, a traditional tea and dining area or even a lovely place to do yoga in the morning. 

If you are travelling as a large group but don't have enough to fill the whole property, you can combine two of the floors, ground and middle or middle and penthouse, to create a space large enough for your group. The configurations can either be 2,3,6 or 8 bedrooms depending on how much space you need.

Kenashi lodge is located right at the base of the Karasawa slope. As such it is a little out of the main part of Nozawa village, though there are a few restaurants within the area. The main part of Nozawa village is a 10-15 minute walk.
