"Residence Stay," the new room-type to make your long- term stay like living in Yatsugatake, will open on April 16, 2020. There is a kitchen, a living room, and a bed space in "Residence Stay." Feels like staying at home and enjoy the tremendous charm of the Yatsugatake.
RISONARE Yatsugatake locates in Hokuto City, Yamanashi Prefecture. Hokuto city is surrounded by Yatsugatake and the Southern Alps, the mountains representing Japan, and was ranked second of the municipalities with less than 100,000 population of "the best country-side you want to live" in 2020 (*1) according to an immigration magazine. In this city, there are many immigrants, such as writers and cooks, who came to seek their dream living environment. This city has workshops and secret restaurants. For people who want to live in the great nature, the new room style "Residence Stay" is designed for a long-term stay with 3 or more nights, which is a perfect chance for you to try the slow life.

The first one of the three must-have for your comfortable long-term stay is the compact kitchen. The kitchen is in the center of the room with a refrigerator+freezer, a microwave oven, and a portable IH cooking stove. The appliance, such as a juicer and ceramic pan, is also available upon request. We also recommend enjoying cooking with the grace of local lands, such as buying seasonal vegetables at the nearby train station or looking for bread and dressing in the shops on Piment Street. Besides the food from the hotel's main dining "OTTO SETTE," buffet & grill restaurant "YYgrill," and the restaurants on Piment Street, the meal choice of your trip got more prosperous.
The second must-have is comfortable gathering spaces. There is a large low table in the living room space; chairs and booths with cushions that you feel like a spacious low sofa when sitting. Slowly wake up in the morning, make and have brunch together, relax or consider the plans of the next day with a glass of wine you like at night. You will want to gather in the living room for a variety of purposes. You can select the wines from the wine shop "Yatsugatake Wine House" by tasting 24 wines, take them out with "VINO BOX" and enjoy them in your room.
The third must-have is the bed space of the loft bed, which is introduced to our rooms for the first time. The area next to the second loft bed is an attic-like private space. At here, you can be away from others to read a book or take a nap, spend your time in your own way. People of a large group or a family with children can spend time in different styles they like free from stress with this design.
