Nozawa Onsen is a rustic hot spring village nestled deep in the mountains of Nagano Prefecture. The area is a hub of outdoor activities throughout the year, especially skiing in winter, but summer provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy an exciting, 10-kilometer-long mountain bike tour down Mt. Kenashi's (1,650 m) wild, undulating terrain. There are many courses, so choose the one that best suits your experience level. Soak in sweeping, panoramic views of the densely forested mountains, before soaking your sore muscles in the soothing waters of Nozawa Onsen.
