I have stayed with the Tomii family at Maruji every year since my first visit to Nozawa Onsen 7 years ago. A combination of incredibly personal service, great location, and being a truly beautiful and authentic Japanese lodge make for a perfect stay in Nozawa. The rooms are spacious and large, an in-house onsen caters for those not daring for... More

Close to a ski run and an easy walk to the village restaurants for dinner at night. Lovely lounge with a wood fire for relaxation. Rooms are light and airy with large windows to take... More

We (two couples) were referred here by the Lodge Nagano crew because they had already booked out. All was great really, no worries. Rooms were large and clean (of course!). Breakfast was nothing special or amazing, just standard lodge breakfast such as toast, yoghurt, sometimes eggs, rice and juice. I would say if it's your first time in Japan you... More

Room spacious for 3 of us. Would stay there again. Highly recommend for a... More

We had a quadruple room for 4 nights which was very pleasant and comfortable. The heating was really warm in the middle of winter. It was close to walk to everything ... the Nagasaka gondola and the main restaurant strip, and there's a public onsen a few doors down. Big drying room. Clean and nice hot spring bath.
