(Link to draft Conference Programme)

Welcome to Nozawa Onsen, a beautiful destination located in the northern part of Nagano Prefecture, a true snow paradise - in fact one of Japan's most superb and expansive winter sports areas!

Nozawa Onsen is  equally renowned for it's onsen as well as its powder skiing, and no visit to Nozawa Onsen would be complete without taking a hot spring bath (an onsen). Many ryokan (including our chosen one, "Ryokan Sakaya") and a few minshuku have their own hot spring bathing facilities - lucky us. In addition anyone can enjoy, free of charge, any of the thirteen public hot spring baths known as sotoyu. They all have a different source with distinct characteristics that provide for a variety of different mineral baths.

Getting to Nozawa Onsen - take your pick!

Train

  • From Narita or Haneda (Tokyo) Airport take an Express Train to Tokyo or Ueno Station (approx 60-90 min)
  • Catch New Shinkansen (bullet train) from Tokyo to Iiliama Station (approx 100 min)
  • Catch Nozawa Onsen Liner bus or taxi from Iiliama Station to Nozawa Onsen Village (approx 30 min)

Bus Service from Narita Tokyo to Nozawa Onsen

Snow ShuttleTwo Services per day Morning and Evening, departs Narita Airport at 20:00, arriving Nozawa around 1:00 am.

On the way back, departs Nozawa Onsen around 10:25 and arrives Narita Airport around 17:00 (going via Tokyo for anyone that wants to stop there). Runs from December to March

A bit cheaper than the Chuo Taxi and easier than the train if you are arriving in the evening.

Chuo Taxi from Narita Tokyo to Nozawa Onsen

Probably the fasterst and easiest way to Nozawa Onsen from Narita airport is the Chuo taxi - but if you do decide to use this option ... BOOK EARLY as they get booked out pretty quickly.
