  • Description


    We are a Japanese family based in Nozawa Onsen, a traditional Japanese village, located in Nagano prefecture, which takes around 2.5 hours from Tokyo.

    This town is famous for its reliable powder snow and public hot spring baths (onsens), of which there are 13 freely accessible throughout the town. Come enjoy the powder and experience the hot spring yourself!

    We operate a small food court in town and in winter season, we need a hall staff to liaise with our customers as most of them are foreigners.
