Japan is quickly becoming one of the hottest destinations to visit these days. Maybe you’re looking into flights to Japan and wondered where the best place to stay is? Forget Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto and journey to the heart of the Japanese countryside where fantasy-like scenery and legendary Japanese cuisine is prepared. Slumber in tatami rooms with views of the rivers, mountains, lakes and forests! Open air baths with waterfalls in snow! This could be you, too!
It’s the ultimate vacation, getting away from it all and settling into the center of real Japanese culture.
