Hello, I am traveling with my partner and he loves Skiing, I love onsens and I am looking for a traditional japanese style hotel, where we have an open air onsen steps away for entering  and he can go to ski at night. We are also spending Christmas there. So a couple of questions : 1.-is the 25th of december everything open?  2.- Which Ryokan do you recommend for us that does not break our wallet 3.- We are taking our flight back to Mexico from Narita on the 26th of December. Do you recommend taking the train straight from Nagano to Narita? If so, at what time do we need to leave if we need to be in Narita by 1pm?
