Visit to Nozawa Onsen
27th to 31st January 2009
A trip to ski in Japan with my brother and ended up a little place called Nozawa Onsen. This low key resort was famous for its onsens long before skiing arrived. The slopes were fantastic and the town had a relaxed feel; it was a relief to be able mellow in a public hot spring after a day on the runs.
The views from the summit were spectacular.
The skiing was great; fresh snow, empty runs and beautiful views.
Yep we're in Japan!
Sunlight flickers through firs.
The local steamed buns were a tasty treat on the way the onsen.
Udon and tempura; the local restaurants were all excellent.
