Hot Springs in Satoyama Jujo
Unwind in a chilled Niigata hotel
Satoyama Jujo is a concept hotel in Niigata with just 13 rooms, each overlooking the surrounding forests and mountains. Everything about this bright, airy hotel is designed to promote relaxation. Take a dip in its open-air baths, from which you can look out across the rolling countryside and, at night, bathe under the Milky Way. Dine at the restaurant for a meal focused on local ingredients put together creatively.
