The Hut   Welcome to the Chicka's Hut.  

In the fall of 2020, a mountain lodge at the foot of the mountain, which is the base of activities for Chikka, opened at the foot of the Tanigawa mountain range.

The old barn, which was used with plenty of old lumber more than 70 years ago, has been reborn as a mountain lodge where you can relax and relax with the hands of Chikka and craftsmen. Please feel free to drop by on your way back from the mountains during your trip.
