    The owner of Satoyama Jujo set out to offer guests a more organic experience than what could be had in the metropolis of Tokyo.

From the unique textiles they use for their duvet covers to the art they’ve chosen to display, Satoyama Jujo is the result of incredibly meticulous planning.

    The food of a ryokan is always one of the highlights of the experience. Breakfast and dinner are included in the price of your stay. Here, the chefs carefully choose organic ingredients and spices to promote a healthy lifestyle. Since the region is known for having the best rice in Japan, the chefs take special care to highlight the quality of the rice in their dishes. Breakfast is included in all the packages, but you have to select a dinner plan when you book. Their dinner course, while expensive, is a ten-course extravaganza that stretches out over two hours, so you definitely won’t be disappointed.

Each room is optimized for a completely relaxing stay. With all the attention that’s gone into designing these rooms, it can feel more like an art installation at times.

    Another important feature of Satoyama Jujo is its onsen. The onsen at Satoyama Jujo is consistently ranked as one of the best onsen views. The open-air bath looks over Mount Makihata and was designed in such a way that no artificial structures are visible. Bathing in an onsen is already a treat, but, when a place goes this far to create such a special experience, it puts it on another level entirely.
