 Description

Ultimate Mountain Retreat

The ultimate mountain retreat in Japan!  Tenku-no-Satoyama is a private rental house in the ridge top settlement of Takahara along the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route.  The house features a lofty ceiling with open, wood beams, and four bedrooms, kitchen, toilet, and bath.  The views are spectacular: terraced rice paddies and mountain panoramas. Guests have been known to spend all day just watching the changing natural scenes, especially the mist as it flows amongst the peaks and in the valley below.    No meals are served, but there is a grocery store a 10 minute ride away in a nearby village to which the managers shuttle guests. Tenku-no-Satoyama is geared towards those looking for an immersive, quiet stay in the mountains.  Multiday stays are recommended.
