Nozawa View Hotel Shimataya

Nozawa Onsen

The View is aptly named. Many of its rooms have stunning views of Mount Kenashi above the village and the Chikuma Valley below.

This spacious, airy property offers very comfortable western & Japanese accommodation.

All rooms are spotlessy clean, many have stunning views to wake up to, and all have ensuite toilets and washbasins.  Some have their own bath and shower, too.  There are Japanese rooms for up to 4 people, and Western rooms with two and three beds. All the rooms have local TV, a kettle, onsen towel, yukata (Japanese sleeping gown), locally-controlled heating, and windows that open. From the south side of rooms, you will see the ski runs and mountain tops of Mt.Myoko.  

A short stroll from the moving walkway and thence the slopes. It’s a stone’s throw from several of Nozawa Onsen’s many great restaurants, 50 metres from the nearest “soto-yu”, or traditional public bath, and less than a minute’s walk to the starting station of the local bus service.

The onsen baths are arguably the most spectacular in the village, with dramatic picture windows showing off the best of Nagano’s mountain scenery.

Had a great time at Nozawa Onsen. The Nozawa View Hotel was a great place to stay, clean a good Onsen and the staff were more than helpful.  My room had a great view of the morning. It was only an 8-10-minute walk to a ski lift. Breakfast each morning was great and plenty of food to start the day’s skiing (the scrambled eggs would be better hot, but I suppose that is the Japanese way)
All the accommodation that Japan SnowAccommodation  booked for us was of a very good standard and I would recommend your company to all my friends

We had a great experience thanks and all the accomodation booking etc went perfectly smoothly.Nozawa View hotel is really good. Couldn't fault it and we loved the traditional rooms. Too many Australians at the resort though and on a fine day there were decent lift queues which was unfortunate but nonetheless a gorgeous village and some great skiing particularly up the top of the mountain where the snow conditions were less susceptible to temperature changes.Your assistance in this trip was fantastic. Thanks so much again.


The hotel is at the far end of the village and about 0.5km from the Shin-yu double chair lift which takes you to the base of the Hikage Gondola (ski school, info, cafes etc).

This lift is free and you buy your lift ticket at the top if you plan to ski.

Nozawa Onsen is a tradional Japanese hot spring village with an amazing variety of snow located in the Nagano region. 

Nozawa Onsen is a traditional Japanese Village first and a snow resort second. It is actually a residential village as well as a historic Onsen town. At the same time you enjoy skiing and snowboarding, you can see the real Japanese culture and life. The resort consists of 24 courses with two gondolas and 17 chairlifts. English ski and snowboard lessons are available.

It is about 80 minutes by Shinkansen (bullet train) from Tokyo to Iiyama station. There is the shuttle bus from Iiyama station to Nozawa Onsen which takes only 25 minutes. After bookiing your accommodation with us we will send you all travel indormation to make transit from the airport an easy and enjoyable experience.
