Soni Highland Farm Garden & Okame no Yu

Located at the entrance to Soni Highland, Soni Highland Farm Garden is a great place to relax and take a break after a refreshing hike. Visit the Susuki-no-Yakata restaurant and enjoy casual European-style dishes that pair wonderfully with craft beer brewed at the next-door Mugi-no-Yakata, according to specifications direct from a German brew meister. Guests can also explore fresh produce from local farms, a souvenir shop, and an on-site bakery that specializes in breads and cakes made with rice flour.

There is a hot spring facility “Okame no Yu” on the same premises, where you can enjoy the open-air baths with dynamic panoramic views.
