Wake to vistas of the Northern Japan Alps and Mount Myoko to the West, and the sun breaking over Mount Kenashi and the valley in front. Put on your skis or board at the door and glide seconds downhill to the lifts. The slope directly in front of the property is wide and gentle; ideal for beginners. For the adventurous, there are back-country powder runs,* including one right from the summit of Mount Kenashi straight to the door. Kenashi Liftside House is a short walk to Nozawa Onsen's famous hot springs, bars and restaurants, but stands apart in an area of stunning natural beauty. When the sun goes down and the groomers are in, complete peace descends, leaving you wrapped in the beauty of mountains in snow. Skiing and Boarding One of Japan's premier skiing and boarding destinations, Nozawa Onsen benefits from a micro-climate between the Northern Japan Alps, the Japan Sea and the Korean Peninsula that sees more snow on its latitude than anywhere else on the planet. The quality and quantity of powder matches or surpasses any other resort in Japan. There are two gondolas and 18 lifts, 36 slopes and a snow park for a total 300 hectares of ski fields – as well as many back-country routes,* including the notorious “fox chute” from the peak of mount Kenashi to the front door of the accommodation. Skiing came to Nozawa in 1912, a year after its introduction to Japan. The ancient hot-spring village had its first ski slope in the 1920s, but it was in Japan Inc's boom years that development of the ski industry really took off. This has the consequence that the infrastructure is geared to a capacity far exceeding the numbers seen today. Barring only the busiest public holiday weekends there are no queues for the lifts and no crowds on the slopes. Nozawa Onsen For 400 years, visitors have made the journey to Nozawa Onsen to be restored in its famous baths, some of the finest in Japan. The village – numbering 4,500 residents – is said to have been established in the 8th Century, giving it a charm and atmosphere quite different to other ski destinations in Japan. Tradition is vastly important to the villagers of Nozawa Onsen, and the ski fields are managed and preserved communally. Bathing is a social event – the “onsen” of Nozawa Onsen means “hot spring” – and villagers still congregate daily at the Ogama hot spring in the centre of town to boil their eggs and vegetables in the piping, sulphorous waters. Among its produce, Nozawa is noted for a very fine sake, the ubiquitous Nozawa-na pickle, soba noodles and steamed dumpling. It has a glorious Zen temple and renowned Edo-style main spa building. Nozawa Onsen is also famous for its Dosojin Fire Festival, an unforgettable experience and one of the “big three” fire festivals in Japan. Getting around GETTING AROUND Distance to Nozawa village In the snow, it is a 12 to 15 minute walk to the Oyu spa bath house which marks the heart of the old village. It is a pleasant walk, pretty and not too steep on the return journey. Distance to the road Kenashi liftside apartments is on the ski slope itself, but at the bottom of the slope. It is about 60 meters to the cleared road at the nearest point. Distance to the nearest public spa bath house The Nakao bath house is 300 to 400 metres from Kenashi Liftside House Taxis Nozawa Onsen has taxi services until midnight. Ski lifts and gondolas There are two ski lifts within 120m of Kenashi Liftside House. One goes up the Karawasa Valley, the only is a lift connecting with the Nagasaka Gondola Shuttle buses to other areas There is a shuttle bus from the road behind the property to the Nagasaka area, where a gondola, large ski rental shop and several restaurants are located. The shuttle bus also goes to the center of the old village. The service stops at around 5pm. Other Things to Note FAQS Below are some of the questions asked by our guests. You can use your brower's search command to find a particular topic Bathrooms and toilets The top and middle floors have a bathroom with a toilet, and a separate toilet and urinals. The bottom floor has a bathroom and a toilet. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. Guests on the first and second floors can use the toilets and bathrooms on either floor, and also the toilet and bathroom on the top floor (except the ensuite in the master) in the case that the other facilities are in use. Fee structure Accommodation is charged per room, per floor in the case of the top floor, or for the whole building. Discounts on the standard price are offered for renting two floors or the whole building. The top floor when available costs 65,000 JPY (all prices here in yen) and sleeps four, or six if the attic space is utilized, which is at the guests' own risk. Rooms on the middle floor cost 25,000 for the room with three singles and 23,000 for the smaller rooms. On the bottom floor, the room with three singles costs 15,000 and the other rooms 12,000. With the exception of the rooms with three singles, it is assumed that each room will sleep two. Extra guests can be accommodated at a cost of 4,000 per guest on the second floor and 3,000 per guest on the bottom floor. Food Kenashi Liftside House is self-catering and guests are encouraged to make use of the large kitchen and dining areas. Nozawa's biggest local stores deliver foodstuffs to the door, and some of its restaurants have delivery and take-out services. There are lodges and hotels serving food two or three hundred meters from Kenashi, and in season lunch is available at the restaurant next door (the only other building on Karasawa Valley, with no staying guests). The biggest concentration of restaurants and bars is around the Oyu spa bath house in the old village, which has some excellent Western as well as Japanese food. Housekeeping and cleaning There is at most times a resident housekeeper. Rooms will be clean and sheets fresh on arrival, and communal areas will be cleaned and vacuumed. Kenashi Liftside house is however a shared, self-catering lodge, and guests wash their own clothes and dishes as they would in their own house. Beginner skiiers and boarders Karasawa Valley in front of the property is ideal for beginners – it is a gentle slope, very wide with very few people at most times. Because of the location of the property, beginners can come in and out of the property as they please rather than spending the whole day on the slope sometimes tired and sore. Parents can also watch their children on the slope from the house Ski lessons Ski schools operate from the Hikage ski area at Nozawa. They may provide private lessons on the Karasawa Valley by arrangement. Kenashi's housekeeper is also a ski instructor. Children Children are very welcome at Kenashi Liftside House, and Karasawa Valley is a great, safe place for them to learn or to practice skiing or boarding. Contact person in case of questions and difficulties There will be a housekeeper in residence at most times. In the event that the housekeeper is absent, there will be people to contact by telephone, text and email in the case of questions or difficulties. Lift passes There is a Nozawa Onsen Ski Centre 50 meters from Kenashi where passes are available. Ski rental There is a small ski, snowboard and skiwear rental shop on the cleared road behind Kenashi. The range is necessarily narrow, but the quality of the gear, and of its maintenance, is high. Towels and bed linen Bed linen is clean and fresh and clean towels are provided on arrival at Kenashi. We are not a hotel with a linen service, however, so please re-use your towels. Longer-staying guests will have their linen changed. Dry room There is a dry room at Kenashi, on the bottom floor to the rear of the building. House rules Shared facilities Guests on the first and second floors are encouraged to use the shared facilities – kitchens, dining and lounge, recreational facilities and bathrooms and toilets on either of those floors. Guests on the top floor may or may not decide to keep that space private. Arrival and departure times It is assumed that guests will get into their rooms on their day of arrival after 2pm and will vacate them after 11.30 on their day of departure. This is to allow us to clean and prepare rooms for other guests who are looking forward to arriving the same day. Guests that arrive earlier than two, or who want to ski on the day they leave, are welcome to keep their bags and change at Kenashi. Children in the attic space Unfortunately children may not stay in the loft on the penthouse floor, for their own safety.

The Neighborhood THE NEIGBOURHOOD Location Kenashi Liftside House is ideally located at the foot of Nozawa Onsen's Karasawa slope. Wake to vistas of the Northern Japan Alps and Mount Myoko to the West, and the sun breaking over Mount Kenashi and the valley in front. Put on your skis or board at the door and glide seconds downhill to the lifts. The slope directly in front of the property is wide and gentle; ideal for beginners. For the adventurous, there are back-country powder runs,* including one right from the summit of Mount Kenashi straight to the door. Kenashi Liftside House is a short walk to Nozawa Onsen's famous hot springs, bars and restaurants, but stands apart in an area of stunning natural beauty. When the sun goes down and the groomers are in, complete peace descends, leaving you wrapped in the beauty of mountains in snow. Skiing and Boarding One of Japan's premier skiing and boarding destinations, Nozawa Onsen benefits from a micro-climate between the Northern Japan Alps, the Japan Sea and the Korean Peninsula that sees more snow on its latitude than anywhere else on the planet. The quality and quantity of powder matches or surpasses any other resort in Japan. There are two gondolas and 18 lifts, 36 slopes and a snow park for a total 300 hectares of ski fields – as well as many back-country routes,* including the notorious “fox chute” from the peak of mount Kenashi to the front door of the accommodation. Skiing came to Nozawa in 1912, a year after its introduction to Japan. The ancient hot-spring village had its first ski slope in the 1920s, but it was in Japan Inc's boom years that development of the ski industry really took off. This has the consequence that the infrastructure is geared to a capacity far exceeding the numbers seen today. Barring only the busiest public holiday weekends there are no queues for the lifts and no crowds on the slopes. Nozawa Onsen For 400 years, visitors have made the journey to Nozawa Onsen to be restored in its famous baths, some of the finest in Japan. The village – numbering 4,500 residents – is said to have been established in the 8th Century, giving it a charm and atmosphere quite different to other ski destinations in Japan. Tradition is vastly important to the villagers of Nozawa Onsen, and the ski fields are managed and preserved communally. Bathing is a social event – the “onsen” of Nozawa Onsen means “hot spring” – and villagers still congregate daily at the Ogama hot spring in the centre of town to boil their eggs and vegetables in the piping, sulphorous waters. Among its produce, Nozawa is noted for a very fine sake, the ubiquitous Nozawa-na pickle, soba noodles and steamed dumpling. It has a glorious Zen temple and renowned Edo-style main spa building. Nozawa Onsen is also famous for its Dosojin Fire Festival, an unforgettable experience and one of the “big three” fire festivals in Japan.
