Nagano, Japan | Winter 2018
If you have snowboard/ skii in Japan before, you prolly have encountered or at least heard of this place before.
Well, I actually haven't! I have heard of Hakuba (right next door to Nozawa) instead though - been there back in 2017. Nozawa Onsen is really, seriously famous amongst foreigners (ahem, Australians). I have been to Niseko before and even though there are also a lot of foreigners there, the town is quite big and sparse out so you likely see more locals and other nationalities there. Nozawa Onsen, however, is quite small. There are a few slopes though, but in terms of the actual town is quite tiny.
Anyway, I stayed there for 3 days to snowboard so might as well take photos while I was there.
