Himecho@Yasushi launched into the Christmas and New Year season with gusto!!
Our very first guests arrived before Christmas. It was really lovely to see Himecho@Yasushi filled with happy faces and much laughter. So far so good!! While we expected teething issues with a new property, we’ve been surprised at how well the planning our team did prior to opening has ensured a smooth launch. We have had the best guests and are delighted they enjoyed their stays. Everyone has been thrilled with this latest addition!!
Of course, the only thing we could not plan for was the weather and the snow came late this year… Guests arriving earlier in the season discovered instead, the many different activities and attractions of Nozawaonsen. This village has so much to offer - from the iconic onsens and massges, to fabulous walks - on snow shoes or in hiking boots, to cooking and craft lessons.
As one might expect, being in the top agricultural regions of Nagano and Niigata, the myriad gastronomic offerings cleave to a very high standard. With more time away from the slopes, many were encouraged to take strolls through the village and try the restaurants and cafes located a little further away. There is so much yummy food to be had here!!
Tia and Tyson have opened IVY, an absolutely charming Wine and Tapas bar in the historic bar space here. Now the snow has come in hard, this is a perfect stop as you come off the slopes. It’s just minutes from the moving walkway from Hikage so come and unwind for a relaxing apres ski tipple and nibble.
Come visit us soon!!! We’ve been pretty fully booked, but it is still possible to come later in the season…
