Book your trip
An inn where guests can enjoy seasonal scenery, fishing, and great food

Nakatsugawa, a little away from central Iide-machi, is a district surrounded by nature and blessed with an abundant bounty from the mountains. Aeru-Mura, run by Kayoko Miya, a former chef at Shirakawaso, and Hideo Miya, who runs a yamame trout fish farm and fishing pond, hosts junior high school students on school trips as well as anglers and other recreational travelers. At Aeru-Mura, visitors can enjoy nature to the fullest, with budding flowers in the spring, pampas grass in the fall, and blooming dahlias that Kayoko-san carefully cultivates.
