nozawa
 Nozawa Onsen, renowned as the Mecca of skiing, has a history of evolving hand-in-hand with skiing since the establishment of its ski club in 1923. Although Nozawa Onsen is a tiny village with less than five thousand inhabitants, it has successfully hosted numerous international ski championships including FIS races and Interski-related tournaments. It has also produced numerous Olympians and other international skiers. The Japan Museum of Skiing is also set up here preserving Japan's history of skiing. The museum exhibits a wide assortment of precious material including items used by Hannes Schneider, who was a champion skier involved in Nozawa Onsen's history. It was Nozawa Onsen's profound closeness to skiing that enabled it to establish such a valuable property.

 The village takes great care in operating the ski areas at Nozawa Onsen, where profound understanding and enthusiasm for skiing has been the driving force behind development. Nozawa Onsen's ski area extends from Mt. Kenashi's crest at 1,650 meters above sea level through its skirts. It is unquestionably an ideal ski area giving top consideration to its users. Even beginners can board a gondola lift and view the breathtaking 360-degree panorama at the gently sloping crest. There are twenty courses bounding with distinctive qualities such as the 5,000-meter Skyline Course, the challenging Schneider Course (a Nozawa Onsen special attraction), Japan's first competition course, the Kandahar Course, and more. The unique village-operated transport system is fully equipped with lifts and moving walkways linking the courses to make your skiing a delightful experience.

 Coming down to the foot of the mountain, you find yourself in the hot spring area, where lingering white vapor brings on a mood of buoyancy. This hot spring area, which legend says was discovered by Gyoki the bonze in the first half of the 8th century, has been prospering as a therapeutic bath resort since the days of old. Strolling through the village, you come across community bathhouses called "sotoyu" operated under the traditional membership system of the 17th century Edo Period. At Ogama, one of the hot spring sources, you can catch a glimpse of the Nozawa villagers' daily hot spring lifestyle. It is not unusual to see them boiling field mustard or wild mountain plants in the hot spring water.

 Although there are modern facilities such as Nozawa Onsen Arena and Kurhaus Nozawa, all in all, Nozawa Onsen retains an atmosphere of traditional Japanese heritage. As a skiing Mecca and as a rare resort retaining traditional Japanese heritage, Nozawa Onsen is an exemplary mountain resort of which Japan can boast to the world.

Sister city: St. Anton am Arlberg
 St. Anton am Arlberg is the native village of Hannes Schneider, who played a major role in Nozawa Onsen's history. Situated in the westernmost part of Austria, St. Anton am Arlberg is a village where skiing flourishes. In 1971, the villages of Nozawa Onsen and St. Anton am Arlgerg entered a sister-city affiliation. Since then, both villages have been maintaining friendly interactions, including yearly skiing exchanges and exchange visits by junior high school students. The signed sister-city agreement and material about St. Anton am Arlgerg is on display at the Japan Museum of Skiing.
