    Hi all,

    I'm a noob looking to try snowboarding for the first time!

    Again one of those last min travel plans..

    I'm going on the 26th Jan 2018 - 3rd Feb 2018.

    3-4pax

    Looking for a place where there's a private toilet / bathroom. Was thinking one or two different places if I can't get a place for all 8 nights.

    I've been searching around, most of the accommodations listen on the guide map, can't be found in English. Any suggestions / package would be welcomed!

    Thanks all!

    Why go to a traditional hot spring village and want to have a private bathroom? You're also really limiting your choice of accommodation.

    Get in touch with the crew from Nozawa Holidays. Tell them Nic said to get in touch.

    I never showered at my accommodation in Nozawa.
    Onsen.
    Though I did lose a $500 buck watch in one.

    I am, currently communicating with Kerri.. trying to get a place for my dates, so far it's mostly full. Trying for maybe two different locations for my stay.

    Well.. it's not really my say about wanting a private bathroom, it's the girls. I'm open (literally) to onsen I guess. It's a southeast asian thing, wanting bathroom privacy (at least to me).

    Ha, lived in Malaysia for 7 years but don't think it's just a S-E Asia thing. ;)

    Come to Akakura Onsen. We have a private onsen & just had a cancellation for that week. PM me if interested.

    Ohh - your have your own private onsen:thumbs:? Now that makes a difference (does not need to be private though:whistle:) Outside?

    The one I used to use in Nozawa has closed down their website ( Mishuku Asaya) http://www.dia.janis.or.jp/~asaya/, anybody know if they have closed down business?) It had a great small bath facing the wood and mountain.

    No, just an inside bath. There's scope to add an outside area but it would need some major engineering to avoid snow falling off the roof.
