We will introduce the main questions in a Q&A format.

~Before arrival~

Q: Regarding preparations in advance

A: Please prepare only the ingredients, firewood, charcoal, and fire starter. Other general items are included. For specific equipment, please see the bottom of each facility page. (Salt, pepper, soy sauce, and oil are provided as seasonings. Wrap, aluminum foil, and kitchen paper are not provided.)

If you are a beginner, I think it will be easier to start a fire if you use thinner firewood or coniferous wood.

Q: About check-in and check-out

A: Both are self-service. Please enter and leave the room at any time between check-in and check-out times.

There is a key box at the entrance. The key box number will be sent to you via message or email on the site immediately after your reservation (for sites that require separate payment, such as our website or ACO, immediately after payment). Please take out the key and enter the room. Please close the door when checking out and return the key to the key box.
