How to stay
(For example …)
When you arrive in the evening, take a break with Skavla’s original herbal tea, which is a blend of 12 kinds of herbs.
The picturesque view from the wooden frame window slowly and quietly changes.
At dusk, the Daisetsuzan / Tokachidake mountain range and the hill where the tractor runs slowly are dyed vividly, and an airplane dyed in orange lit by the sun appears quietly with the mountain in the background and is ready to land at Asahikawa Airport. When the sun goes down, the moon slowly rises from the edge of the mountain and stars appear in the night sky.

Nature cannot be helped by human power. The scenery you see may not meet your expectations due to bad weather. Bad weather is something that allows you to discover new harshness of nature in bad weather. The owner himself considers blizzards and thunderstorms to be one of the seeds for creating a spectacular view.
