Outline of the property
It started as a place to stay for those who used the Yamakoshi Sports Park during the Yamakoshi Village era and then started an accommodation facility with outdoor facilities in order to make it a base for tourism and exchange in the whole Yamakoshi area.

Located at the highest point in the Yamakoshi area, it is a peaceful and relaxing facility full of romance with a panoramic view of nature. Please enjoy the panoramic view and the cuisine with plenty of Yamakoshi's unique flavors to your heart's content. We will entertain you with our carefully selected dishes and a relaxation paradise.
