Spot"Snow Country"

As Japanese mountains usually have hot springs bubbling away in their depths, Nobel Prize winning author Kawabata Yasunari, did well to choose Echigo Yuzawa Onsen as the location at which to base his novel "Yukiguni" (Snow Country). With heavy snowfall annually, the area attracts numerous enthusiasts to its winter sports facilities.
