RISONARE Nasu, Hoshino Resort’s first “Agrotourismo” Resort
What: RISONARE Nasu, located in the Nasu highlands in the Tochigi prefecture, marks the fourth opening beneath the RISONARE brand. RISONARE Nasu offers “agriturismo” experiences – a term that is believed to have originated in Italy and references the coming together of agriculture and tourism. With the “agriturismo” concept, the resort provides an escape from the chaos of urban life and introduces travelers to nature’s wonders while immersing them in local culture and customs. The Nasu area is home to sought-after highland vegetables, herbs, and rice and offers agriculturally-themed activities tied to the changing seasons throughout the year. The resort offers 43 guest rooms, enveloped by the lush forested area, as well as an Agri-Garden, where various plants and crops are grown. The property will also feature two dining options including an Italian-themed restaurant serving-up dishes made with vegetables and herbs gathered on-site. There are also family-themed facilities such as POKO POKO, which offers fun nature-related activities for children and adults alike; BOOKS&CAFÉ, a casual café and library equipped with a stone oven where guests are invited to custom-create pizzas with their own freshly picked vegetables; and Net Zone, a 21-foot long net stretched from wall to wall, where guests can bounce around to release stress. Rates begin from USD$ 188 per night, per person, including breakfast and taxes. For more information visit https://risonare.com/nasu/en/
