In addition to the hotsprings Nozawa Hotsprings also has amazing scenery and many famous sightseeing spots!
Oborodukiyo no yakata
There is a museum dedicated to the achievements of Japanese lyricist and literature scholar Tatsuyuki Takano (1846-1947) who wrote the words to such famous songs as "Haru ga Kita (Spring has come)", "Oborozukiyo (A Hazy Moonlit Night)", "Furusato (Hometown)," etc... in a songbook compiled by the Ministry of Education.
Towards the end of his life Takano lived for twelve years at his second home called "Taijun Sanso" in Nozawa Onsen Village. Takano, who was called Hanzan, left a large number of writings, diaries, letters, and some of his favorite things and they are now on permanent exhibition.。

Schneider Square is now open! At Nozawa Village Hotsprings a new place of culture has been created. An old storehouse has been renovated and on the first floor of Tokiwaya a brewery has been set up where you can enjoy craft beer from Libushi's Craft Beer Bar.
The main symbol of the square is none other than Taro Okamoto. On the occasion of moving this village's first work by the artist, we recommend looking around the town and finding his other works.
Mini hotspring area Yurari
Located very near the hotspring source Ogama is the mini hotspring area Yurari。
It is perfect for visitors to Nozawa Hotsprings who while on a stroll around the hotspring village would like to take a little rest and enjoy the hotsprings.
It is one of the just over 30 hotspring sources around Nozawa Hotsprings, and with a temperature of nearly 100C it spews out boiling hot water making Ogama, Marugama, Yudegama, Takenoshigama, and Shimogama's large hot water reservoir, and therefore Asagama Hotsprings, one of Nozawa Hotsprings most scenic spots.。
Japanese Ski Museum
The Japanese Ski Museum is located at the bottom of the Isemiya ski slope and rather than being one based only in Japan, materials have been gathered from various locations all around the world. This gives the museum an extensive selection of specialized materials starting with the birth of the sport and continuing until the present day. The exhibition certainly offers visitors an invaluable and extensive collection of materials to enjoy all in one place.The chronological history of skiing is divided into six parts, the typical ski equipment and materials that have been used, then using photographic panels each unique era is introduced. There is a "Japanese history of skiing" corner as well as various other corners. In a special exhibition room temporary exhibitions will also be held.
In front of Oh-yu there is a foot bath set up. Also, there is one in front of the entranceway to our inn.
Anyone is welcome to use the footbaths. Why don't you walk around the village and try some of them out.
