The ultimate mountain retreat in Japan! Tenku-no-Satoyama is a guesthouse 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.
Tenku-no-Satoyama is geared towards those looking for an immersive, quiet stay in the mountains.
