The Hut

Chicka's Hut

The Hut   Welcome to the Chicka's Hut.  

This mountain Hut  is located at the foot of the Tanigawa mountain range. It is the base for Chicka's activities, serving as a tour departure and arrival point, a hangout and a space for botanical research.


The original barn was built about 80 years ago with plenty of old wood. It has been transformed into a relaxing and peaceful cabin by the hands of the chicca and craftsmen. For information on the adjacent chicca garden, go here.
