About Yuzawa, Niigata

Tell me about Yuzawa!

Yuzawa is an old hot spring town. Echigo Yuzawa is the setting for Yasunari Kawabata's novel Snow Country, and Naeba Ski Resort is the location for the annual Fuji Rock Festival. The Yuzawa area is full of sightseeing spots. Winter makes it a destination for skiing and snowboarding. Play in the snow all day and soak in a hot spring bath at night. In summer, enjoy camping, wading in the river, and sports. Yuzawa is a great town for spending quality time with family and friends.
