Nozawa Onsen Venue & Accommodation
03/08/2017 STOP PRESS: our block booking is now fully subscribed so we recommend you check Trip Advisor, bearing in mind the conference venue is near the Oyu Onsen in the village of Nozawa Onsen.
The Ryokan Sakaya is our chosen venue for our inaugural Medicine with Altitude conference in Nozawa Onsen where all our lectures will be held. This traditional japanese ryokan is a 3-minute walk from Kenmei-ji Temple and the Nozawa Onsen bus stop. Offering free Wi-Fi access, it houses indoor and outdoor onsen (hot spring) baths. It is a 2-minute walk from Nozawa Onsen Sotoyu (public hot spring bath) and a 20-minute drive from Nozawa Onsen Station. And it is also only a 5 minute walk to the amazing Yu Road which is basically a travellator getting to you to the base of the mountain and home again.
We have taken a block booking for the conference and there are a variety of rooms which feature the yukata (Japanese bathrobe) and a private bathroom with a bathtub and hairdryer. A flat-screen TV and a personal safe, are included, along with a fridge and green tea making facilities.
The hotel has the most luxurious natural hot spring onsen facilities for both women and men with a variety of baths including outdoor onsen and sauna facilities. Along with the beautiful hospitality on offer at the Sakaya, there are opportunities to go for a massage, or to even reserve the onsen (hot spring) bath for private use at no charge.
The Ryokany Sakaya sells ski passes and offers ski storage, and other facilities include a gift shop and coin-operated laundry machines. On-site parking is free, and breakfast is included in the accommodation charge.
