Residence  Yasushi  

A modern luxury Kakure-Yado in Nozawaonsen



About Residence Yasushi

Residence Yasushi is a luxury modern Kakure-Yado (Hidden Inn) in the charming thermal hot spring onsen village and ski resort of Nozawaonsen near Iiyama. Overlooking the Kitashinano forests adjacent to the Tsutsujiyama Park, Yasushi comprises twenty comfortable rooms with full ensuite facilities. Yasushi's private thermal hotspring onsen baths are fed by the prized milky Shinyu waters.

We believe that modernity in tradition combines the best of Japan’s exemplary design aesthetic with contemporary comforts. We sought out collaboration in Japan, but also more broadly in Asia, to bring this vision to life. Today, Residence Yasushi exudes a timeless elegance, every room a contemporary interpretation of the composed, pared down hospitality traditional to Japan. 

Just a convenient five to ten minute stroll to the dynamic heart of Nozawaonsen village, our location in the Shinyu area is wonderfully quiet and has allowed us to create rooms that you will find privacy and tranquility in.

We hope you will come and visit us, relax at Yasushi while you enjoy the skiing and touring attractions around Nozawaonsen.

Green Season 2020

The snow was late this year but carried into a wonderfully long season. Sadly, by March, few could enjoy the wonderful Spring skiing conditions as the viral outbreak curtailed travel plans everywhere.

As the world grapples with the challenges brought about by the COVID19 outbreak, our village has decided to restrict movement in and out of the village as much as possible. To that end, Residence Yasushi and Himecho@Yasushi will not be taking reservations over the next few months. As many are experiencing globally, this Spring in Nozawaonsen will be a quiet home bound time.

We will review the situation in the summer for the feasibility of an autumn opening, but are very hopeful we will all be able to enjoy winter freely again. Bookings for winter 2020/2021 are now open. We know these are fluid conditions and will be incorporating additional flexibility for guests given the fluid conditions of global travel. We are, for example, offering late pre-payment deadlines for confirmed bookings and will align with global health and travel advisories as they evolve later in the year.

In the meantime, we wish all our friends good health. Keep safe!!

We look forward to seeing you soon at
