There are also family-style baths so you can take the kids to enjoy the onsen without worry. The interior features a local wholesaler and a restaurant for sampling cuisine made with local ingredients.

The location is perfect, with the Hatomachisanso accommodation facility established here, as a base when accessing to Mt.

There are stores, restaurants and souvenir shops that sell local Katashina Village ""Oze brand"" merchandise, mountaineering goods and so on. Among these, the original Scarlet Runner Bean Soft Cream is very popular. During the season, due to car access limitations, it is recommended to take a bus or taxi from Tokura nearby."
