SpotEchigo Yuzawa

Echigo Yuzawa Onsen is famous as the area in which the plot of "Snow Country," by Kawabata Yasunari is based. As the town has many public baths and private facilities as well as hotels and onsen ryokan, and isn't that far from Tokyo, it does tend to become somewhat crowded with skiers and the like during wintertime. Gala Yuzawa is a ski area connected directly to Gala Yuzawa Station on the JR Joetsu Bullet Train Line and is just an hour and a half from Tokyo. The ski season ends in May.
