Property information

Why will you come to the TAKAYAMA and stay in a downtown? To a HIDANOMORI away from the town a little just 4km. HIDANOMORI is in the forest and under the Harayama Mountain Of course you can go mountain hike Please enjoy fresh air, good water and the Japanese country side I'm waiting more than a heart.
