The canonical backwoods hot spring and skiing resort, Nobel prize winner Yasunari Kawabata's classic novel ''Snow Country'' (雪国 ''Yukiguni'', see box) takes place in Yuzawa.  Or so the Yuzawans claim; to be quite strict, the novel never mentions the name of its setting, but Kawabata wrote the novel while staying in Yuzawa so perhaps it's not too big a leap to make.
