Snow Country Lodge Takahan (also called Snow Country Inn Takahan) is a ryokan located in the city of Yuzawa in Niigata Prefecture, Japan.

Snow Country Lodge Takahan was establised over 800 years ago. This lodge is where in 1934 Nobel-prize-winning author Yasunari Kawabata wrote his first novel Snow Country - a tragic romance set in the area. His room is preserved for visitors to see.



The lodge is located above downtown Yuzawa.


Their hot spring bath is called "Tamago no Yu" - "Egg Water" - because water it uses contains some sulfur. The inn advertises the fact that it draws its water directly from an underground spring and does not sterilize or recirculate it
