During Spring Summer and Autumn, besides onsen, there are many other great activities to keep you busy during your time in Nozawa onsen, provided by local family businesses. Be sure to check them out.
Some of the most popular are listed below but please see the Nozawa Onsen tourist information centre for more interesting things to do.
Green field SUP tours, camping and more. Green field, owned and operated by a multi-generational local family, runs a professional SUP guiding and hire company. They can get you into SUPing on the calm waters of Hokuryu or Sutakako lakes- both very close to Nozawa- or you can try a more adventurous river tour on the Chikuma river or further afield. Be sure to check out their amazing tree house campsite set in the Cedar forest below the village.
