This was our first time in Japan and it couldn't have been better. The snow is unreal, and the Nosawa Onsen is such a great little village. Everything is still authentic and the local people are really friendly. The Villa is such a great place to stay. Very clean and well organised. The hosts, Kyoko and Gab, are fantastic. Really...

It probably helped that the snow was amazing but we had a wonderful time at Villa Nozawa. Faultless. Comfortable spacious room, helpful, friendly staff. Great breakfast and just a short walk to the ski lifts and an onsen to sooth away those post ski aches and pains. It was a dream and I should also mention, great value. We went... More

Gab and Kyoko offered us the most attentive hospitality. From making us feel welcomed to guiding us through the essentials in Nozawa, sharing tips and helping us make reservations whenever needed. Our little flat was very nice, fully equipped and perfect for our 4-member family. We'll be back. Anne & Frank.
