Bettei Senjuan, Minakami
Situated an hour outside of the metropolis of Tokyo, Bettei Senjuan looks out on Mount Tanigawa, with its snow-capped peaks and the cherry blossom trees at its base that turn the landscape a beautiful pink in spring. Take the time to discover the hot spring baths in the rooms, the gardens, and the tranquil wellness. Floor to ceiling windows frame the views of unspoiled nature and allow natural light to fill the Zen-inspired interior, where modern design meets the art of Kumiko wood joinery and original calligraphy. The impressively presented traditional food with a contemporary twist is also influenced by the hot springs for which the region is famous.
