Kojyoukan is an old ryokan in Ishiuchi. The outside is old and striking whereas the inside has a modern, stylish look but still very traditionally Japanese. A fantastic place to stay in Minami Uonuma

Huge sports bar, restaurant and event space on the road out of Yuzawa that fills a hole in the nightlife of the town. Food, drinks and games for apres-ski party people.
