  • New for the 20/21 ski season, Scout is yet to visit Sakaya Hanare... stay tuned!

Scout tips

  • Great central location in the heart of Nozawa Onsen
  • Unisex jacuzzi on-site (no traditional onsen)
  • Flexible bedding for families in each villa


Sakaya Hanare brings a new offering of Japanese-Western style apartments for families in the heart of Nozawa Onsen. Formerly the popular Jon Nobi hotel, these villas are new for the 20/21 ski season (scheduled to open January).

There will be a range of Japanese-style units, spread across three bedrooms plus loft space. Boasting a mix of Western-style bedding and traditional futon mattresses, they will be perfect for families of all shapes and sizes. Each villa will feature multiple bathrooms and self-contained facilities for added convenience.

Unique in Japan, Sakaya Hanare will offer a unisex jacuzzi for guests (rather than a traditional onsen), plus a small restaurant/cafe. It is ideally located in the middle of Nozawa Onsen, within walking distance to local supermarket, restaurants, and shops. The Yu-Road travelator is a short walk away to whisk guests up to the ski resort base.

Stay tuned! More hotel information to come as the winter season approaches!
