Zao Plaza Hotel is the Japanese style ryokan standing on the height. Magnificent views of Zao are commanded from the open-air hot spring bath, the restaurant and guest rooms. Enjoy through the year, fresh green in spring, hiking and watching alpine plants in summer, red leaves in autumn and skiing on the silver snow in winter. Please touch the feeling in season. At the open-air bath, the Japanese cypress are used and it makes hot springs into soft and the body will be pretty wrapped warm.
