Welcome back to Autumn in Nozawa Onsen and with signs of the first snow thought it was time to touch base and share the excitement.

After a pretty warm Summer as always in Nozawa Onsen it looks like Autumn has taken a firm grasp on the mountains.
With temperatures really cooling in the past weeks, last night we saw our first dusting of snow on the top at Yamabiko.
This was confirmed with some splashes of white coating the peak of Mt Myoko early this morning. Just some slush but great to see. Temps are expected to be as low as -3 degrees on top of Mt Kenashi tonight.

The elders in the Village often say when we have a hot summer means we can expect a cold winter and and early start to the season so fingers crossed.
The Ski Resort has confirmed it will try to open the lifts from December 3rd 2011 so only 2 months from now. Locals have been worried that it may be a quieter season this year but from all reports popular times are starting to fill up already which is a great sign.

There has been a buzz around the resort with some exciting things happening for the coming season. The top station of the Nagasaka Gondola is undergoing a full renovation which will see a new restaurant and café opening in December. The Gondola has already been in full swing over Summer bringing hikers and Mountain Bikers up to the top to enjoy the green season.

Another blast form the past will see the revitalization of the famous Kurhaus. A luxury onsen and spa retreat in the centre of town. In its heyday this was the place to go at the end of a day on the slopes. It had since become a bit neglected but this season it is to be restored to its former glory days.

Nozawa Onsen and everyone here is doing well, the rice has just been harvested, the Autumn Lantern Festival was a great success and spirits are high, we are ready and look forward to welcoming you all back for another amazing ski season in Nozawa.
