Looking for a unique place to stay in Japan?
You landed on the right place to find it. We have plenty of selected info on hotels and inns in Japan such as hotels and inns with private natural hot spring bath, several love hotels etc. as we selected based on our experience.
This time, let us introduce not hotel, not inn but a tent! It is not even a normal tent but Mongolian traditional yurt tent.
Looks cold in winter? No, it is actually quite warm inside the tent.
Most popular thing about this hostel besides being able to experience a Mongolian life, it has the natural hot spring (inside and outside). You will be in the middle of nature taking this hot bath!
Please note that this is not a conventional hostel. It is something in between hostel and tent. Thus, the shortcoming is that the wash room/toilet. It is outside and not so convenient in the night time or rainy day where not too much light.

Name: Mongolia Village Tenger
Address: 1577-9 Takakuhei, Nasu, Tochigi, Japan
How to get there:
Take a bullet train to Nasushiobara 那須塩原 station from Tokyo (1.5 hours), then take Utsunomiya line to get off at Kuroiso station. Take a bus at Kuroiso 黒磯 station to get off at Yuai no Mori 友愛の森.
At the Yuai no Mori, there is a free A free shuttle bus ( must be reserved at least 3 days in advance ).
It is a bit complicating to get there by a public transport, better rent a car to get there.
Good news for winter sports fan, Mount Jeans Nasu Ski Resort is a 25-minute drive away.
