Yuzawa Town is located in the southern region of Niigata Prefecture, just to the north of the Tanigawa range of mountains on the border with Gunma Prefecture. Yuzawa is about 80 minutes away from central Tokyo using the Joetsu Shinkansen bullet train. The Kanetsu Expressway and the main Route 17 national road runs through the town.
Yuzawa Kenko Land is something of a unique place to stay in Yuzawa.
Inside, there's a large area for sleeping (along with a room just for women and a few private rooms), onsen hot spring facilities and an area for meals.
The building next door is a large souvenir shop that sells a selection of local goods including food and drinks and a restaurant.
In front of both of the buildings you can enjoy watching - and feeding - some beautiful 'koi' carp fish.
(Photographs of the souvenir shop and koi carp can be seen on this page and the Photos page).
All of this is located just by the side of Route 17 which is the main road going from Yuzawa to Minamiuonuma - meaning that Yuzawa Kenko Land is in a great location for anyone wanting to be within easy reach of all of the ski and snowboard resorts in both Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma.
At an extremely reasonable 2400 yen per night for an adult, it also lets you have extra money to spend on the winter sports bit of your holiday!
Please note that reservations in advance are not possible.
