Kagoshima prefecture Kirishima mountain range TENKU
Soaking in panoramic views and an astounding atmosphere
An entire mountain covering nearly 24.5 acres overlooking the Kirishima Range has been made the site of this lodging, comprising just five wooden villas, of which only three are open for overnight stays. The other two are reserved for serving lunch to guests or helping them just relax in nature for the day. Tenku means sky or air. To facilitate full enjoyment of the serene atmosphere of the mountains, all of the buildings have spacious open-air wood terraces. There is nothing more liberating than walking barefoot on these wooden floors.
