This is a great location (just 5 min walk from chair lift) in a very authentic Japanese ski town. The town itself is very cute - lots of shops, restaurants, some bars/izayaka/yakitori, and onsen (baths! perfect after a day of skiing). Leo was solo during my stay (Linda had gone to Australia), and he was a great host. Very communicative about transportation, and he met me at the bus to walk to the house. I was able to meet his friends from the local ski shop over dinner - which was a wonderful experience to meet and have fun with Japanese people. Leo had breakfast ready each morning before I headed out to ski and provided suggestions on dining in town and areas to explore. This town is great for anyone who wants a more authentic Japanese ski experience (I've heard many of the other resort towns in Japan are extremely Westernized), and the hosts are great people with a clean, comfortable, and conveniently located house!

Leo & Linda were amazing hosts. Immediately felt at home there and 'part of the family'. Breakfast was excellent, perfect to set you up for a day on the slopes. It's only a five minute walk from the main bus stop and also the gondola which is awesome. There's a real homely and communal feel to this place and there a couple of other cool couples staying at the same time which added to an already great stay. Highly recommended and will be coming back! Thanks for all the hospitality Leo and Linda!

Highly recommend staying here for a couple or family group. Fantastic Japanese local village with the best ski field we have ever been to. To top that off Leo and Linda are the best hosts to stay with as they look after you so well and Linda is a great cook. We will be returning.

My husband and I stayed at Sora for 8 nights with our adult daughter and her husband. We each had a twin bedroom with traditional Japanese futon beds on the first floor where there were 2 further bedrooms occupied by 2 other couples. On the first floor there was also a shared toilet which was handy. The 3 self contained bathrooms on the ground floor were kept clean and well stocked and there was never an issue with waiting. Leo and Linda were wonderful hosts and went out of their way to assist our family. They even leant us a ski jacket when the zip on my daughter's jacket broke. Linda is a great cook and made wonderful breakfasts every day. You could help yourself to tea and coffee at any time. Sora is in a great central location. The main gondola is just a 5 minute walk uphill, and the main street is 5 minutes downhill in the opposite direction. You can leave your ski gear at the ski hire shop near the gondola so you don't have to carry them each day. There are a variety of eating places nearby and the public onsens are a must after skiing all day. Thank you Linda and Leo for helping to make our time in Nozawa so enjoyable.
