I loved staying here. I was only supposed to stay 5 days, but immediately knew I had to stay longer. Luke and Mariko are the most helpful and friendly hosts. They went above and beyond at all times and were an absolute pleasure. Everyone staying there is really open and ready for a conversation, drink or outting. Everyone is out... More

I have to start with the breakfasts, as I blame them for gaining weight in Nozawa while snowboarding every day :) Luke and his team worked like a well oiled machine, it was a pleasure to watch them work and to try a different, delicious breakfast every day. The Lodge was spotless and Luke and Mariko went above and beyond... More

We were in a group of seven in four rooms. Only a short stay but the staff are super friendly and helpful. Rooms are fine, futons on tatami mats. Not ensuite though which might bother some. Fast wifi. Good location, can walk anywhere in the village, easier to catch a lift to the gondola though if you are in ski... More

Spent March in Nozawa snowboarding and got some awesome powder! The lodge itself is comfortable, with an awesome set up of rooms. Either 4 bed dorms or futon palaces. I stayed in a bed dorm, the rooms are spacious and the beds are ok (firm, but what you'd expect in Japan). It's location is great for walking access to town... More

Lodge Nagano was a lovely place to stay. From the warm & helpful hosts to the wonderful cooked breakfasts every morning! They were helpful at pointing out rental places, which onsen to try & the different restaurants to choose from. Was extremely easy to get to on the shinkansen line. We would definitely come back :-)

The lodge is about 5 minutes walk from the centre of Nozawa Onsen village and about 2 minutes walk from the closest ski trail.
