4*+ Kawamotoya

Nozawa Onsen, Japan

Featuring seven stunning apartments and a luxurious penthouse, Kawamotoya is a Ski Safari favourite and one of the most delightful properties in Nozawa Onsen.

Each apartment offers impressive views of the mountain and the multiple steaming onsens in the village. The hotel proudly features the only deluxe penthouse in the village of Nozawa Onsen.

Kawamotoya also provides luxury facilities including a gym, theatre room, private soaking baths (“kashikiri”) which you can enjoy with friends, family or partners and a morning shuttle service to the Nagasaka gondola during the winter months.

The onsite Harding's Café serves some of the best Western & Japanese breakfasts we've had in any resort and provides a spectacular selection of pastries, hot drinks and snacks all day long.

The superb reception team will help you find the best onsens, make dinner reservations and even organise the courier service to ship your luggage to your next destination.

"Overlooking the village and with great views of the mountain, Kawamotoya is a high-end addition to Nozawa Onsen's fantastic accommodation options. Combining modern Western and traditional Japanese qualities, this is our property of choice for Nozawa Onsen and a firm Ski Safari favourite. Top tip - make sure you eat breakfast in Harding’s Café, the breakfasts are some of the best we've enjoyed in any resort."
