Winter wonderland, summer retreat

Nestled in the northeastern corner of Nagano prefecture, Nozawaonsen is a beautiful little onsen village with a long history, dating back to at least the Edo Period (1603-1868), when the first bathhouse was constructed. Today, this picturesque mountain settlement remains an onsen paradise, and has since become one of Japan's top ski destinations, hailed for its high-quality powder snow.
