Wanosato, Takayama, Japan
There’s something magical about taking the train
through the mountains of Hida-Takayama and catching your first glimpse of Wanosato’s
fairytale-like cluster of quaint and majestic 160 year-old minka (thatched-roof
guesthouses – each a unique mix of eclectic elements) tucked away in the
forest. Wanosato is now a well-known hot spring destination and nature retreat,
where you’ll enjoy deliciously healthy local cuisine, and an unlimited dose of
fresh mountain air.
