たてしな藍 Tateshina Ai

Tateshina Ai / Nagano Tateshina・Lake・Shirakaba・Kurumayama・Lake・Megami・Himekidaira 194


In the west side of Yatsugatake mountains there is a Tateshina plateau where many tourists visit throughout the year.
Tateshina Ai is waiting for you calmly in that plateau.

The buiding is a Kyoto design (Sukiya) and rooms are spacious.
The spaciousness blurs boundary between internal and external space in this building infused with the spirit of Japanese architecture.

The concept of "homemade kaiseki banquets" began when the inn opened and is carried on today under the name "Yamami cuisine".
The specialty of this cuisine is in the delicate tastes from vegetables and fish.

The hot spring is very gentle so you will be relaxed as never before.
In addition there is also a workshop in the elegant art of indigo dying.
You will enjoy the contrast of green of the woods and indigo blue.

We invite you to spend a happy time in the this quiet hidden inn on the plateau 1150m in elevation.

I wanted to spend a luxurious time doing nothing for birthday celebration. All of the rooms, food and bath were very good and had a good time of relaxation. Room facilities, beer, tea and coffee in the refrigerator were prepared in exactly the right amount and content, and saved. Not only the content of the meal, but also the timing at which the course meal was provided was adjusted flexibly and I enjoyed it at my own comfortable pace. In addition, I felt that the assortment of alcohol was just right, including the type and price. Is the bath a little warmer for both indoor and open-air baths? But I enjoyed it slowly thanks to it. The service and conversations of the staff were not too far, not too far away, and it was very helpful with a good sense of distance. As a whole, various points were well thought out from the viewpoint of the staying side, and personally everything was felt just right and I was able to spend a very relaxing time. This is a cold season for the new year, so next time we will revisit the lush season and the autumnal season to enjoy the scenery.
