Yuzawa Nakazato review (submitted before 2003)
This is by no means the best place in Yuzawa town.

Naeba, GALA, Kagura, Kandatsu, Iwappara all beat it it in terms of size, courses, snow. But having said that I still have a soft spot for this small resort. Probably becoz it is where I learnt where to ski way back 7 years ago. Since then I have become an above-average skier and recently also taken up snowboarding, which I am really enjoying this season.

Nakazato is good for beginners and those looking for long twisting challenging runs will be disappointed (you should stay to the right hand side of the hill as you look at it).

The resort has it's own little station on the Joetsu local line (about 10 minutes before the Echigo Yuzawa station), so it's really convenient to get to.
