Stayed at Villa Nozawa for 3 nights from 27th Dec 2011 with 3 mates. The lodge has a great Japanese feel that fits right in with the quaint old Japanese ski village that is Nozawa Onsen. For non-Japanese speaking tourists this is the place to stay. Mark and his staff are super friendly and welcoming, organise everything you need and advice on where to eat was invaluable - every single meal we had on recommendation was phenomenal!
Stayed in the Japanese tatami rooms which have all the space you need, provide a great Japanese experience and given the price, the value is outstanding. Great breakfasts included too.
The lodge is a 100m walk to the slopes which is super easy and convenient - especially if you're a powderhound looking for first lifts. Nozawa Onsen terrain is excellent, some nice steeps, trees and plenty of powder - it simply didn't stop snowing while we were there but for a few brief glimpses when the sun poked through.
Short walk to the heart of the village with restaurants and a few bars. Nice hot onsen to soak the sore muscles after a day on the slopes is located directly behind the lodge.
In short, I'd recommend Villa Nozawa for anyone from families with kids to mates on a powder trip. Outstanding value.
