Message from the owner

We are located in a recent, manmade village constructed at the bottom of a dry lake. We are committed to environmentally friendly farming. Many different wild birds come to visit. The residential area has sidewalks and pine forests along the road, where you can take a casual stroll. In spring, cherry blossoms and rape blossoms flower along the road, stretching out into the distance. The landscape is so beautiful here. Guests are welcome to use the hot spring facilities near the hotel.
