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.​​
