Nozawa View Hotel Shimataya


We don’t provide a formal laundry service.

However, we have washing and drying machines for guest use.  We provide regular detergent (let the staff know if it’s running out at any of the locations) but not post-wash or specialist detergents.

Wi – Fi

All our properties have wi-fi throughout. Note that there can be “blind spots”: Japanese building codes are stringent and this can mean impenetrable walls in places.

Please ask our staff for the appropriate password.

Parking Space

We have a small number of parking spaces available for guests in Address Nozawa, Kawamotoya, View Hotel, Elizabeth, and (in summer) Paradise Chalet.  However, Nozawa’s charm is that of a small village and hence parking space is scarce – please understand that we must therefore give priority to guests who have reserved their parking space at the same time as booking their accommodation.
Parking will cost JPY 2,000 per night per vehicle.

There is some –very limited – paid parking space in different areas of the village which we can assist with.

Transport Service

Within the village, you absolutely don’t need transport!

Locally, to visit Iiyama where there’s a comprehensive shopping area, or for excursions to nearby resorts, restaurants, tourist sites, etc, we can arrange taxis or mini/microbus service on a day’s notice. We may be able to do this at shorter notice but resources in and around the village are limited.

For longer distance travel, airport transfers, etc, please talk to our staff as early as possible for us to arrange for you.

The bus service to Iiyama is good and we have timetables available. Due to limited resources, we are unable to offer pickup services.

Drying Room

For guests planning to bring their own equipment, our drying room is available for use, free of charge.

Entertainment Room

JPY 1,000 per Person.
Food and drinks not included. Staying overnight is not allowed.

Advance reservation required. Contact us here for more information.


Nozawa View Hotel Shimataya has its own private onsen baths and, are arguably the most spectacular in the village, with dramatic picture windows showing off the best of Nagano’s mountain scenery. The piping hot natural spring water will warm you to the core, and the mineral content will leave your skin glowing and refreshed.  After showering off, ease yourself into the soothing bath, and think of… nothing.

As the old saying goes, “don’t just do something, sit there”.

A comfortable changing room completes the experience.
