Welcome to Zao Oomiya Ryokan

Enjoy a range of experiences amidst the grand scenery surrounding Zao Kokusai Hotel.
Zao Onsen Ski Resort is famous for its soft rime, 'Jyuhyo' rarely seen in nature.
Visit Zao and experience all it has to offer throughout each season, including skiing and snowboarding during winter.

Nestled between the cluster volcanoes of Mount Kattadake, Mount Kumanodake and Mount Goshikidake is Okama Crater Lake, named so for its resemblance to a pot or kettle (known as 'okama' in Japanese).
The temperature of the water 10 metres beneath the surface can drop to just 2 degrees celcius, but deeper down, the temperature of the water layer increases, creating an unusual phenomenon unseen in other lakes.
An absolute must-see on any itinerary.

Winter season

Soft rime is a condition that occurs when super-cool water droplets descend from fog and attach to objects such as trees, creating frozen layers of fragile white ice.
They start to form in weak windy conditions and temperatures of -5°C or below, and transform into larger, more elaborate shapes that bend in the direction of the stronger wind.
Zao is famous for its soft rime-covered trees which take on beautiful, but menacing forms of 'snow monsters' stalking the mountains. They are a big attraction for tourists during the ski season.
