#1 of 149 in Winter Sports in Chubu
Must see · Ski Area · Outdoor Activity
At Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort, go for a ski down the mountain slopes and take a relaxing mineral bath in one of the traditional public hot springs. The entire area brims with beauty and changes color throughout the season, turning lush forests from green in spring and summer into vibrant red and gold in autumn, until powdered snow covers the hills in winter. The village close to the resort comes to life during ski season, when visitors come to indulge their winter sport passions. During off-season, everything calms down and becomes peaceful. The annual Nozawa Onsen Dosojin Festival, one of three greatest fire festivals in Japan, features a huge blazing bonfire to dispel evil spirits and protect families' first-born children.
