HITOU - Japan Association of secluded Hot Spring Inns
Woken up by the twittering of a bush warbler, you find yourself in a quiet inn 2000m above sea level. When you open the window, a cool clean wind flows through. The green buds of the larch trees are beautiful, and it is so high and so fresh here that air conditioners are not necessary at all. The inn is located at the centre of the Yunomaru Takamine Natural Forest Park, and it is one of the best places for climbing Ike No Daira moor and the peaks of the Asama Mountains. For those guests staying at the inn and not on a day trip, the nature observation tour in spring, and walking on the snow and cross-country tours in winter are very interesting excursions. You might also be treated to an explanation of the stars in the night sky (make sure you study up on your Japanese astronomy terms!). Needless to say, 2000 metres towards the heavens will make you feel as though you could touch these stars. There are two baths and both of them are wooden. From the window of the bath, we can see the Komoro Basin, the Central Alps and the Utsukushigahara plains. Included in the spa is calcium and natrium, and the touch of the water is gentle on your skin. As you soak in the spa, hearing the twittering of the bush warblers and the little cuckoos is a refreshing and revitalising experience.
