In Ohinata, Sakuho-town, Nagano-pref.
We built a small cottage at a mountain side of the natural woodland which separated for a while from the colony.
The time flows graceful here, while the interval of farm labor or works in the mountain.
It is a special time to have Coffee or Beer while looking at Mt. Morai on the other side.
You can spend time, being surrounded by nature...
reading books slowly, taking a walk the mountain, listening songs of birds while lie on a hammock in the forest.

An amazing space to unwind. Each morning we woke up and sat outside to read, breathe and draw the mountains surrounding us. We would drive off for a late lunch, followed by an onsen and head home to our little cabin to see the stars.

Such a special place. A must do for travelers needing a break from the busy cities of japan. Definitely need a minimum of 2 nights to get full appreciation. Really can’t say enough about this place, it’s not luxurious but I personally consider it luxury. Enjoy!

Getting around

I recommend you come by rent car, because there are beautiful places in 30 minutes by car, and it is not convenient in our place to buy foods.
