Tateshina Ai



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.

まず、お部屋からの自然の景色や解放感がとてもリラックス出来ました。 夕食もとにかく優しいお味で満足しました、接遇もとても良く気持ち良くすごせました。 また、絶対に行きたいと思うお宿です。

First of all, I could relax very much the natural scenery and the feeling of liberation from the room. I was satisfied with the kindness of the dinner and the service was very pleasant. Also, I would definitely like to go to the hotel.

It was a longing hotel that I would like to stay once before. I was very excited to be able to stay at a great deal this time. There were few guests on weekdays on weekdays, so I was able to spend time quietly as if I thought we were a couple's lender. Both the food and the bath were very satisfying, especially in the night lobby, it was a very nice time surrounded by the sound and light. The correspondence of the staff was also good. I want to come again! I came back thinking.
