From here, you can get sweeping views of the Yamato Basin and the Osaka Plain, as well as enjoy bountiful flora highlighted by azaleas in spring and susuki silver grass in autumn. Choose from guest rooms in either Japanese tatami or mountain-cabin style. There’s also a public bath, and a restaurant where you can savor the specialty, duck hot pot.
