Togari Onsen review by tripler
Togari is a 15 minute drive from Nozawa Onsen.

There is a shuttle bus from Togari station to the resort but it's not very regular. We ended up walking from the station, which took 30 mins.

There's no gondola (biggest lift is a quad) but the resort is larger than I'd expected. Interesting ungroomed terrain is easily accessed from the pistes. It was snowing on slightly heavy, old powder and mostly a white-out when I was there. That and arriving a bit late in the day, meant I couldn't fully explore the resort. I would go again.

Lift tickets are cheap (3,800 yen I think) and that includes a 1000 yen lunch voucher which can be redeemed at any of the resort restaurants, and free entry to the local onsen (highly recommended). There's also a pasta restaurant - not covered by the lunch vouchers - in the village which is very good.

With good conditions I'm sure Togari could offer up some excellent skiing.

I'd highly recommend spending a day or two there.
