Ashiu Forest, where the Yura River originates, has pristine nature and is a habitat for rare plants and animals. One can also feel the history of a lifestyle that is close to nature and a traditional culture that has been passed down, such as a village where many houses with distinctive thatched roofs remain.
It is located 10 minutes by car from Kitamura, which is the tourist center of the Miyama district and boasts the highest percentage of thatched roofs remaining in Japan, as well as from Ashiu Forest. The property also borders the Yura River (Miyama River), where you can enjoy playing in the river.
The newly renovated property has a beautiful mix of modern and stylish interiors with traditional features.
