눉Futons became a little uncomfortable after 3 nights.
눇Best location- right next to the gondola. Short walk into to village centre to get dinner. Excellent breakfast included.

눇Nakajima is a small family owned lodged immediately adjacent to the Nagasaka Gondala which is the first and most important rule of staying in Nozawa. The climb up the hill from the village in ski boots and carrying skis is a challenge even for adults let alone children. It is so must easier to be based at the mountain and wander down the hill to the public onsens and restaurants and bars in the evening. The lodge itself has 7 rooms 4 with a loft and can sleep and house 4 comfortably. Any more and it becomes a squeeze. Rooms have traditional bedding and shared facilities. Because there are so few staying, this works fine. The showers are also traditional open with stools, shower hoses and mirror, and both the men and woman have a natural water onsen for bathing. The restaurant serves great breakfast and both traditional Japanese and western food, and they have a full bar open for lunch and dinner. The cost of meals and drink is very reasonable. The restaurant wraps up early so there is no boozy evenings in the restaurant. You need to head down to the village for that. The family that run the Lodge are simply gorgeous, with one of the daughters who speaks excellent english. Best to get a 20 minute taxi from the Bullet train as it takes you to the front door whereas the bus drops you in the village leaving a difficult and confusing walk up the hill with all your luggage - believe me, first time there, you will get lost.
