I like Nozawa, both the skijo and the village. It's a great place and I have heard that it gets great snow. But this season it seems be missing out on that and being very average. None of that full-on for a week kind of snowfall that previous seasons have delivered.
It was almost spring like when I went, early February. I won't go on about the snow. It just wasn't good.
I like the mountain though especially the top area
