(English) Hatomachi Mountain Villa
Hatomachi Mountain Villa is used as the base for a climb on Mt. Shibutsu, one of the 100 great mountains in Japan, and a walk to Ayamedaira (marsh). As it is conveniently located close to the bus stop, you can start early the next day even if you arrive in Oze late in the evening. As the trails of Mt. Shibutsu are open only during a certain period of time each year, check the relevant information before making a reservation. As Hatomachi Mountain Villa is located at the gateway to Oze, you can take a walk after leaving your heavy luggage there. The meals are mainly washoku (Japanese cuisine) and the guest rooms are Japanese-style. Reservation for a private room can be made for two guests or more. You may request a bento (packed meal) for lunch at the time of check in.
