We Know Himecho House, Nozawa Onsen

A traditional machiya style house where you can live in authentic Japanese style!
Himecho is located at the foot of the Yu Road moving walkway with direct access to the Hikage ski area, and is close to Ogama, the spiritual heart of the village. It is a historic machiya-style townhouse, unique in Nozawa Onsen, and accommodates families or groups of up to 12 adults comfortably.
Come and experience a holiday steeped in tradition. Himecho’s five simple, comfortable rooms are typical of bedrooms in a traditional village house. You’ll be sleeping on futons on tatami, although your futons will be built up for a softer feel as generally preferred by our non-Japanese guests. All bedrooms are spacious and bright spaces.

A private dining area on the first floor, as well as a sitting room on the ground level next to the entrance hall or genkan provide comfortable spaces to enjoy some board games or chilling out after a day out.

Traditional Japanese homes do not have ensuite facilities. Toilets are a few steps down the hallway near the bedrooms, and there is a spacious ofuro bathroom on the ground floor. Don’t forget though, there are also Nozawaonsen’s famed public onsens with therapeutic waters you must try!
There are several "soto-yu” or public baths within easy reach of Himecho. Since the Edo period, Nozawaonsen has been famed for the waters of its different onsen “soto-yu”. You will often spot visitors and locals wandering around the village in yukatas, with towels thrown around their necks and toting a basket of toileteries, on their way to enjoying the different waters.

Still, we live in today’s world and there’s WiFi throughout the house!

The entire property is non-smoking, and up to three persons can share each room. Himecho is ideal for a private party of up to 12 adults. Please enquire about availability. Check-in at the main building, Residence Yasushi - where we can complete formalities and organise transfers for your luggage. We understand that our guests at Himecho value their privacy and independence but will not neglect your comfort. Throughout your stay the concierge at Residence Yasushi will be at your service.
