The following is things that we feel sorry for our guests.
In Nozawa onsen, all streets are very narrow and steep, and there is no flat wide area because this town is very old town and located at the middle of mounatain. Therefore, all buildings & houses are very adjacently built each other and not comfortably big.
Kawaichiya is composed of 3 buildings, but the building having a elevator is only one of them. Every building has 3 floors, so some of our guests need to take stairs.
Because of the particular topography of Nozawa Onsen,
there are some corridors to connect with each buildings in Kawaichiya. Therefore, it is a structure not understood easily for you.
- Narrow & Small
Addition to the above mentioned information, our facilities, which are a guest room, dining room, public toilet and so on, are not so big or wide as well.
The topographical situation of Nozawa Onsen might be uncomfortable for you, but in fact, it is necessary for keeping Japanese local atmosphere.
