Kumanote Lodge


Kumanote Lodge comprises of two apartments, both with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, designed in a modern Japanese style with comfy Western beds.  You will feel like a local staying in this quiet residential area of Nozawa with a traditional hot spring onsen just across the road.  The village of Nozawa Onsen is very compact and its an easy 5 minute stroll from Kumanote Lodge to the centre of town. 

Kumanote translates to bear paw, and has a very significant tie to the village’s history.  Steps from the lodge is one of the most famous hot springs, Kumanote Arai.  As the story goes, Kumanote Arai was discovered hundreds of years ago by a hunter who came across a bear soaking its wounded paw in the hot spring’s healing water.  After a long day on the mountains nothing soothes the body and soul better than a soak its waters.

Getting to the mountain from Kumanote Lodge...

2. Yu-road - about a 12 minute walk; a moving escalator that takes you from the village to the Hikage Gondola.
