All the sounds of the forest were reflected and concentrated to the point above the hot spring bath. You can enjoy the silence and subtle sounds of insects with birds chirping.
The hot spring bath inside can be seen a little bit from outside. The outside bath in the sunshine may be the symbol of luxurious time. Nobody was there other than me.
I think the capacity of the hotel is the best to savor enough the quality time with your family or be-loved. Sit back and stretch your legs in the hotel. You can look into yourself amply like a meditation.
Male cicadas were burning their lives by making the sounds to attract and fascinate their would-be their partners. Their season of love is very short.
Listening to the sounds made by cicadas in the woods, this space is special without noisy creatures speaking too loudly. So far so nice.
This premises is surrounded by trees and this red bricks. This wall collects the subtle sounds of the nature and gives us so nice background music. But please be careful. Black fly or gnat may bite you.
To reach the premises of the hotel "Tsuruga Moku-no-Shou", you have to come down the slope from the national route and go across the bridge on the white river.
The appearance of the hotel was like that of shrine or warehouse of old temple. The design seemed to strike a nice balance between the forest and facilities inside accommodation.
The white river was keep flowing through the trees and grasses and make comfortable sounds that ease the pain of our body and soul. Male cicadas were burning their lives and making their own sounds to invite females.
This is the entrance of the hotel. The design was the traditional pattern of the indigenous people of Hokkaido Ainu.
Each family of Ainu has their own pattern of textile. The doors were colored with gold and brown. They made an exotic contrast with the black openwork.
Many wood carvings were displayed in the hotel. Above is the sculpture of Ezo Blakiston's fish-owl half-opening the wings. I am not sure the cost of those carvings but they were the "must" to create this space with atmosphere.
