Secret mountain & amazing Onsen!
Are you looking for somewhere with less western tourists and more local culture?
Manza Onsen is a classic Japanese ski resort.
What makes Manza Onsen different from the other ski resorts?
The difference is the Onsen experience. This onsen resort is one of the highest onsen resorts in Japan as it is located at 1,760 meters above sea level. For this reason, the view from the open-air bath is outstanding. A feature of this onsen is the color of milky white. Renowned as a symbol of Manza Onsen, "Karabuki" jets volcanic gas containing steam from between the rocks.
But, how good is the snow?
Due to the high altitude of 1,994 meters, Manza Onsen Ski Resort offers the lightest and driest powder snow in Japan's Northern Alps. The trails are mostly designed with beginner and intermediate skiers, but there are a number of fun features including a mini terrain park and a few non-groomed runs.
How is the accommodation?
It is a small mountain so we would suggest to stay 3 or 4 nights at Manza Prince Hotel which is a ski in ski out hotel with the amazing indoor / outdoor Onsen! There is even a mixed bathing Onsen. But, don't worry! There is a special dress for female and male guests can use towles in the bath.
