The Lodge Nutpukaushipe is a warm, clean and friendly place, ideally located for hikes in the national park. The interior is filled with rustic furniture hand carved by the owner, which adds a unique charm. Rooms are large and simply furnished, with the shared bathrooms being immaculately clean.
The inside onsen is small, clean and relaxing, but the real draw here is the external onsen, two rock pools surrounded by foliage overlooking a waterfall and a mountain stream. An amazing, tranquil spot.
Food is locally sourced and absolutely delicious.
We paid 16,000 yen for our stay, which included two meals. A very good deal considering the steep prices generally in Japan.
The owner was charming and helpful, and with our limited Japanese and his limited English we managed to struggle through.
