Ujo Soan, beautiful even in the rain
Visiting Ujo Soan during Japan's rainy season? Consider yourself lucky! This sprawling world of gardens and beautifully designed villas was specifically named for its ability to shine when the sun isn't. The tranquil setting, just a minute's walk from Yuhigaura's beaches (some of the best sunsets in Japan), provides the perfect atmosphere for letting everything wash away.
Among the bamboo forest paths cross trickling streams, you will have your choice from six separate Japanese-Western style villas. Each house is private, with natural hot springs.
The Soke Suite, is 108㎡ and has the architecture of a traditional farmhouse with the comforts of a luxury hotel. The cuisine, of course, matches the excellence of the rest of the establishment.
