The NeighborhoodAt the market at Marumero Michi-No-Eki (3 mins by car, 10 mins by walking), you can eat and dine at restaurants, buy seasonal vegetables, dairy products, deli foods and confectioneries from the local farms, harvested and prepared the villagers.
Adjacent to the market is Yasuragi Hot-Spring. You can enjoy very good quality community hot spring, which my family and friends from abroad use almost every day and night. It is a friendly community hot spring with restaurant, massage and even karaoke! Even you are from abroad and first time in Onsen, just go ahead and try the hot spring!
If you take a walk from the house to the hot spring, it is a very present walk among nature, and kids like to play, catch insects and flowers along the way. Getting AroundFrom Tokyo:
Shinkansen from Tokyo to Ueda station, and take a rental-car.
Or drive by car from Tokyo.
2 car parking space at the house, but rather narrow street access so a bit difficult to park for first time but usually works ok. If large cars you may park overnight at nearby Marumero Michi No Eki.
The best nearby spot to take care of needs is Marumero Michi-No-Eki. There are Lawson convenience store, and a few restaurants for dining. Other Things to NoteDear Foreigner customers,
These days we are very sad about few customers used inside slippers to access outside kitchen. It causes scratches on the beautiful natural wood floor.
Please kindly note to change into outside sandals to access the kitchen.
Your kind understanding would be much appreciated and would keep our Inaka Home beautiful.
