Over Nozawa Onsen’s 100+ years as a ski resort, the village has grown to accommodate all kinds of guests, most properties are predominantly Japanese style, with western hotels and apartment complexes being the minority. Take in the warm hospitality and minimalist ambience of the Traditional Japanese décor, offered in Japanese style properties.
Japanese accommodations are with woven tatami mat flooring, and traditional futon bedding, rooms may have no facilities, a private toilet only, or a full ensuite. But not to worry, with plentiful hot springs around town, you’ll be wandering from one to another, and you will hardly have time for an in-room shower. Western rooms with beds are few and far between, and apartment style accommodations are even more difficult to come across.
