Welcome to the Kakurean Hidaji

Nearest Major Airports

The Kakurean Hidaji is a small inn of just twelve rooms nestled quietly amongst the Fukuji Hot Springs and an unspoiled landscape in the foothills of Japan's Northern Alps. There is nothing ostentatious or opulent about the facilities or service. The inn itself features nostalgic architecture and interiors typical of the Hida area that embrace the natural beauty of Okuhida's changing seasons throughout the year. There is the relaxing open-air bath from where you can view the starry night sky. During the time you spend here in the tranquil ambiance away from the busy routines of life in the city, there is a good chance that you will remember those precious little things you forgot.
