Nozawa Onsen Update

by Mark on December 31, 2010

Party Time New Years Nozawa Style

Misty start to the day here in Nozawa with the sun poking thru the clouds. Snow forecast to start falling later today and heavy tonight.
Should make for a magic New Years at the Temples

Yesterday was a great day up the mountain with the fresh snow of the night before
The New Years crowd has arrived and the slopes and town are a buzz
Looking like a big weekend in Nozawa

Temps are just feeling colder in town finally with a decent amount of snow now settling on the ground
The late night stroll was pretty cold making the onsen even better
Looks like going to get really cold in a few days with around -20 degrees forecast up the top

Tonight at Nagasaka they will have night skiing from 16:30 – 23;30 with fireworks and free sake. There will be a countdown there too. On 1st January, they will be giving out free sake at Uenotaira. In the village, people will be making their way to the Temple where they will ring the bell 108 times very slowly. It usually starts from around 22:30.
