Many visitors take a trip to Nozawaonsen-mura, a picturesque hot spring village in Nagano Prefecture, to get away from it all.
On the 21st (Sat), take some stellar pictures from Uenodairakogen, thenfly down the slopes at Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort, thenhit the slopes at Nozawa Onsen, and finally don't miss a visit to Amidado. Keep things going the next day: fly down the slopes at Kijimadaira Ski Resort and then head outdoors with Shigakogen Yakebitaiyama Ski Area.

Plan my Nozawaonsen-mura trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Nozawaonsen-mura is an approximately 19.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Malaysia Time (MYT) to Japan Standard Time (JST) is 1 hour. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in December: high temperatures in Nozawaonsen-mura hover around °C and lows are around °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) early enough to drive to Nagano.
