I was able to spend time with my family. I could see the seasons in a fun conversation with the bartenders and wanted to visit in the summer. The star of the night sky after drinking a cocktail with the family was exceptionally beautiful. At dinner, I was able to taste the ingredients and dishes carefully. The service by our staff was a pleasant and enjoyable trip. Thank you very much.

Read more 山奥へ進んでいく道の先にポツンと建っていて、その日は宿泊者が少なかったのか人の気配も少なく寂しい感じがしました。しかし、お部屋に入ると非日常の空間ではあるけれど、どこかお家に帰ってきたホッとするような広くて素敵なお部屋に迎えられました。掛け流しの温泉はとっても気持ち良かったです。露天風呂は、目の前の景色を遮るものがなく雪の降った朝は絶景でした。また、アメニティの充実(アロマオイル嬉しかったです)や朝食のバイキングは自家製のものが特に美味しく満足でした!!

It was built with a poton ahead of the road going to the mountain, and I felt that there were few people staying there and that there were few signs of people that day. However, although it was an extraordinary space when I entered the room, I was welcomed in a spacious and nice room that would make me feel like I came back home. The hot spring at the end was very pleasant. The open-air bath was unsurpassed in the morning when it snowed without interrupting the view in front of the eyes. Also, the quality of amenities (aroma oil I was happy) and the breakfast buffet were especially delicious and satisfied with home-made foods !!
