Hinanoyado Chitose is located in the very heart of Matsunoyama Onsen. It is a small hamlet that is part of Tokamachi in Niigata prefecture, and is also home to beautiful rice terraces and picturesque beech forests. Surrounded on all sides by nature, the people here are used to living in harmony with the natural rhythms of the countryside. It is an area that receives masses of snow in winter and the scenery in that season is delightful. The outdoor baths with views of the seasonally changing colors are also a big draw.
