This is a cozy cottage with a studio layout. Nest has a full (double) sized bed. There is a sofa bed in the living room as well. Please let us know if you want to use it so we can provide bedding. The kitchen is equipped with an IH stovetop and appliances such as a toaster, microwave, kettle and rice cooker. The main room also has underfloor heating. Large windows look out over the river valley. Nozawa Onsen and Mt. Kosha are visible on clear days. There is one washlet toilet with a heated seat in the unit bathroom. There is also plenty of space in the garage by the front door for coats, boots, skis, and snowboards. May through October, camping chairs, table and sun shade tent are provided. You can bring your own BBQ or rent one from us: BBQ set including 2Kg charcoal, new grill nets, and firelighters ￥2200. Nearby summer activities include kayaking at Hokuryuko Lake (car 15min) and hiking on the Shinetsu trail - access to the trail from Togari Ski Resort just 10mins on foot!
There is also a parking garage for one small car (4.2 meters long and 2.3 meters high). Larger cars may use MTN Holidays' car parking space nearby.
Nest is located at Togari Onsen in the heart of northern Nagano’s snow country. It is an easy three-minute walk (even in ski boots!) to the lift of Togari Ski Resort. The bus stop is 3 mins walk. Togari Nozawa Onsen (Togarinozawaonsen) station is about 20 minutes away on foot, or a few minute drive. Nozawa Onsen is a 15-minute drive (about ¥4000 taxi fare) and Madarao is about 40-mins by car.
Togari Onsen is a great place to spend the winter season. The resort gets tons of fresh snowfall, the views are fantastic, and there are plenty of facilities to make your stay a great one. There are numerous restaurants and bars and a fantastic onsen hot spring complete with outside bath all within easy walking distance of Nest. Togari is not nearly as crowded as Hakuba or Nozawa Onsen, but much more convenient than Madarao or Myoko in my opinion. It is the best of both worlds!
