Resort Activities

Get a bird's eye view of Nozawa Onsen while flying above the summer ski slope and Kids Park on a fun Zip Sky Ride zipline adventure. If that's too much adrenaline then a relaxing hike to mountaintop shrines and waterfalls may be more your speed or enjoy some time out on the village tennis courts.

Nozawa onsen golf

While there are several golf courses nearby, we also recommend Yoji Nozawa guests try the mallet golf course in Nozawa Onsen, a fun, affordable activity for the whole family—especially at sunset. There is also a pitch and putt course at nearby Lake Hokuryuko and guests can get some practice swings in at the driving range.

Nozawa onsen Hot Springs

Nozawa Onsen is as much a traditional onsen destination as a world-class snow resort. The free hot springs, foot baths and other great onsen nearby make Nozawa Onsen a great holiday throughout the year. Rejuvenate after a day on the slopes or cycling and trail running around Nozawa Onsen.
