With the majestic Hotaka mountain range and lucid, clear waters of the Azusa River, you can enjoy the fantastic views of the Northern Alps throughout the four seasons.
The mountains are lined with beautiful peaks and clear flowing streams.
You will be mystified by the aura of the morning mist and soothed by the rich greenery in the light, and at nighttime, the sky is filled with stars.
Staying in this dreamlike atmosphere, you will experience firsthand the rare miracles served up by the natural environment here.
It has been around 100 years since Walter Weston experienced these miracles.
