Bar in Zaō Onsen

Your one-stop shop for convivial pre- and post-ski rendezvous, Oto-chaya begins with coffee in the mornings and powers right through to sake and beer, with occasional live tunes, in the evenings. Hearty meals (from ¥850) are available, too. Look for the wooden sign with the teapot on the main road beyond the Zaō Chūō Ropeway.
