A Village Vacation for Deep Relaxation


Rent a private cottage and enjoy a slower pace of life in Oku-Aizu


Treat yourself to a cozy retreat in an untouched landscape at Ittogashi Village's pair of secluded cottages, nestled in the deep forests of Oku-Aizu, Fukushima Prefecture. Built using Japanese wood, these private lodgings offer natural, minimalist aesthetics deeply soothing to the body and soul.

Sip coffee from the deck on summer mornings, or read a book under the shade in the afternoon. Nap in the garden, share a barbeque lunch, or hike nearby trails and bask in the chorus of birdsong. In winter, take in the breathtaking landscape transformed by a majestic blanket of pure white snow. Each cottage also offers its own unique delights. At Kawaberi Cottage, marvel at the mystical view of fog lingering over the winding Tadami River. At Honson Cottage, snuggle up and warm your body beside a traditional wood-burning stove.



Upon request, Ittogashi Village will stock your refrigerator with fresh vegetables and free-range chicken, allowing you to whip up a batch of Aizu jidori nabe, a tasty and healthy local hotpot dish sure to warm you from within. Elaborate bento boxes and nourishing breakfasts can also be ordered for evening delivery.

Choose between the two cottages for your escape. Honson Cottage is set in a small rural village filled with traditional Japanese farmhouses. Soak in the paulownia wood bathtub and venture up the dedicated moss-covered stone stairs that lead to a small shrine. Set into a valley, Kawaberi Cottage is a mere two-minute walk from Hayato Onsen Tsuru no Yu, a 1,000-year-old hot spring beloved for its healing waters and gorgeous river views.

Located in the southwest of Fukushima Prefecture, the incredibly scenic journey to get here is part of the joy of a stay in Oku-Aizu. Departing from Aizu-Wakamatsu Station, the JR Tadami Line winds through charming bucolic scenes and breathtaking natural landscapes before arriving at Hayato Station.


Access: From Tokyo Station, take the Tohoku Shinkansen to Koriyama Station (about one hour 25 minutes), transfer to the Ban’etsu West Line to Aizu-Wakamatsu Station (about one hour 15 minutes), then transfer to the JR Tadami Line for Hayato Station (about one hour 30 minutes) and walk for about 10 minutes.
