Phoebe has been captivated and immersed in Japanese culture for over 20 years. She discovered Yoga as an adult and the connection of conscious breath linked with movement was love at first sight. Her practice and study of Yoga has evolved from dynamic Vinyasa, to its polar opposite of Yin, to powerful Jivamukti, and now to a classical Hatha based practice of Hridaya Yoga and Meditation. The combined practice of contemplative Yoga asana and Meditation has been a profound source of peace, love, healing... and great emotional and physical freedom.

"The best experience I had in Japan"

This was the most amazing and worth while retreat for my mind, body and soul. Nozawa Onsen was magical, a beautiful village surrounded my mountains and the rushing streams of the hot springs. Phoebe was a wonderful guide through the mediation and yoga practices as well as for the village - including restaurants and onsens. This was definitely one of the best things I have done, not only in Japan but in my life. I would highly reccomend this retreat for anyone looking to relax in a beautiful environment while enriching their meditation and yoga practice.

Felt the great history of Onsen city as the hot spring took all of our worries and hurries away, leaving us with the sense of slow quality life which many had pursued over the course of their time.

Thanks to Mark, Yoshiko, Luke and Mariko for another perfect stay at Nozawa Onsen for our family. On this trip we stayed at Ninjin House for 2 weeks, which was perfect for our family of 5 - modern, clean, comfortable and equipped for every need. The team at Nozawa Holidays were always ready to help us out: from ski hire to tours to coffee to random queries. It's the perfect ski holiday experience. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a top quality, low stress family ski holiday in Japan. See you all again soon!

Being in Nowzawa Onsen is like stepping back in time with the luxuries of today. Magical everywhere you turn. The slopes are amazing to ski on, especially for an inexperienced skier. The people are courteous and accommodating. And the local food is simple yet very filling. Will definitely be coming back! Thanks Nowzawa. for being an amazing host. Keep your local culture always. And maybe show us more of what you already have that we are yet to discover.

Nozawa onsen is the one of the best ski resorts in Japan. People are very nice and relaxed, snow is good,and of course old style hot springs are great too. I come with my dog and enjoy skiing every year.
