Tokiwaya Ryokan has been operating for four centuries, with its history dating right back to the Edo Period 370 years ago.
It has four types of natural Onsen water and the water quality and quantity is the best and biggest in Nozawa Onsen. We are the only accommodation that has a license for drinking Onsen water. It might sound unusual to drink Onsen water, but Japanese people drink it as it has lots of healthy minerals.
Your meals will be served at a private restaurant room and complimentary coffee is available at the lounge.
One of the most famous public Onsen, the O-yu is right next to us. Come and experience our very traditional accommodation at Tokiwaya Ryokan!

Nozawa - amazing snow - but getting too crowded - good mix of terrain - plenty of nightlife (but hard to get into places due to number of tourists). Tokawaya - amazing hotel - amazing staff - amazing service and food (but don't tell anyone as we want to make sure we can stay there again next time)!Your service - very good - easy process to book - good options presented for our budget. No complaints!
Early January 2015I can’t thank you enough for your assistance with my recent trip to Japan!
From the first email and all through the process you were professional, helpful and informative. You found us the perfect hotels in the best locations and you saved us by finding a driver when I called you after we missed our train!
I have already recommended you and your excellent service to my friends who will be visiting Japan this coming summer.
Thanks again and best regards,Robert Laker
Mid January 2015I just want to thank you for all your help with the booking and to let you know that we really enjoyed our stay at Tokiwaya, it was a real treat.RegardsDiana

I had a great week at Nozawa OnsenThe snow was great and the mountain had enough challenging terrain to keepit fun. To our relief, they didn't groom every run to within an inch oftheir life like they do at Shiga Kogen and they didn't make a huge fussabout going out of bounds and doing tree runs. The terrain is variedenough that you could enjoy the week without getting bored.Tokiwaya ryokan was very special. The owner/Manager, whose name I'veunfortunately forgotten, went out of his way to help and tried very hardwith his English. His unassuming friendly politeness was sriking, even inJapan. We loved the very traditional restaurant and onsen and the location wascentral to everything.The traditional village layout of Nozawa really makes you feel like you'rein Japan. I'd rate it way above most Japanese ski resorts I've visited.Only negative is that there are already lots of Australians visiting(although fortunately not working there on lifts etc like Niseko) and itbecame incredibly crowded on weekends when Japanese from Tokyo and Nagoyaarrived.In terms of the booking it went smoothly and they knew all about me when Iarrived.RegardsSteve Huntsman

Our stay at Tokiwaya Ryokan was a amazing experience of Japanese culture and hospitality.
The breakfasts and dinners in the Tokiwaya restaurant consisted of traditional Japanese cuisine and would rival the Tetsuya Restaurant in Sydney.
The service was excellent and the rooms were clean. Only criticism is the lack of cupboard space in the room.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Tokiwaya Ryokan for the second year in a row and hopefully we will get a chance to go back again.
Japan Snow Accommodation's service was very professional and their advice was helpfully.
