    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 when the sun goes down and the groomers are in, complete peace descends, leaving you wrapped in the beauty of mountains in snow. NOTE: The may be vacancies even when calendar is blocked; multiple rooms are not supported by single holidaylettings listing.THE SPACEKenashi Liftside House is a private ski-in ski-out boutique lodge. It is aimed at skiers and boarders who want to be right on the slope, and who prefer to eat in town or cook themselves. Nestled in the arms of Karasawa valley, with majestic views to the front and rear, at Kenashi, you are completely immersed in the natural environment.Kenashi Liftside House comprises three floors, each floor with its own kitchen, bathroom, toilet, living and dining areas, and each floor with a different style of accommodation.The top floor or penthouse is 210sqm has a master bedroom with glassed in ensuite bath overlooking mount Myoko and Mount Hiuchi to the west. It has a very large open plan living and dining, with ceilings 5m at the highest point, and floor to ceiling cathedral-like windows looking East up the Karasawa valley. There is a South and West facing Japanese tatami bedroom next to the master, and a large tatami attic space above, intended as a study/yoga/tea room.The middle floor is 177sqm and has three large Western style bedrooms each with large windows and great views. One of these has three single beds. The other two have two singles (which of course can be pushed together) and a sofa-bed. There is a well-appointed kitchen and dining area, and spacious lounge with large windows of the view up the Karasawa valley.The bottom floor, also 177sqm has two tatami rooms and two western rooms. The larger of the Western room has three singles, the smaller, two singles. The bottom floor has its own kitchen and dining area, and a lounge intended as a games space with pool and table tennis. Please note that we have a variety of accommodations at different prices - the above prices are indicative. 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.
