The Japanese best resort ” Tenku no mori”

Today I want to show you”Japaneseque” best resort I’ve visited.


The resort is at Kirishima, Kagoshima prefecture and its about 15 min from Kagoshima airport by car.It is amazing that there is no traffic lights from the airport to this hotel.When you go pass the road through the forest, there is a place called “Tenku no Mori”.

Tenku no Mori is a private resort and set on a leafy, 60-hectare hillside with views of the Kirishima mountain range, this luxe, tranquil resort is 4 km from both the Wake Shrine and the Shiohitashi Hot Spring. They have 3 villas for lodging and 2 villas for a day trip customers.They make the resort very private and exclusive for the customers so dont run into another guests during your stay.I didn’t see anyone except for the hotel staff….


When you arrive at “Tenku no Mori” these cuties come and greet you!

Some people even check-in near this river – so refreshing!4%e3%83%81%e3%82%a7%e3%83%83%e3%82%af%e3%82%a4%e3%83%b3%e5%b7%9d

To my room….


6-2%e9%83%a8%e5%b1%8bInside each villa, the floor is heated by hot-spring and the warmth of the floor is soothing.

6-3%e9%83%a8%e5%b1%8blook at this view from my room!

7-%e7%b5%b6%e6%99%afOf course we have our own open-air hot spring bath!!

8%e9%a2%a8%e5%91%82We can use the bath 24 hours and enjoy the view anytime while we stay. Lunch time! I was amazed to see this view from my table.The hotel serves only 1 set of guests per lunch- how private is this!

9%e3%83%a9%e3%83%b3%e3%83%81Most of the ingredients come from the mountains around the hotel.It is so fresh, chemical free and tasty.Even the salad dressing is home made here….I would love to take some home.


River fish come from this river for the hotel meal.

It is a perfect place for you to forget your daily hustle bustle and just relax.I think if I stayed here for 1 week, I will be fully recovered 🙂

I think Japanese resort can offer different level of relaxation and hope you can come and check it out.
