Minshuku Tadamisou

Just opposite to the Tadami Station, it is the Minshuku (a budget version of hotel) that we stayed yesterday. We were lucky to find such a comfortable place to stay.

  • Since some people still worry about the radiation level in Fukushima Prefecture, so the ski resort provides the data everyday. The day we visited the ski area was with 0.06μSv which was just about the level in Tokyo.
  • Have you ever tried riding on a banana boat on SNOW?
  • How about putting on this pair of special snowshoes and walk on the snow!

    Although it looked easier to walk on the snow after putting on the snowshoes, but we still had to pay attention while walking.

Something to warm ourselves up

After having some fun in the snow, we decided to get something to eat and warm ourselves up!

What can be better than having a bowl of hot shoyu ramen? Nice soup with chewy noodles, a nice combination!

Or try to the tomato ramen? It tasted like pasta in tomato soup which was special and delicious!

Beautiful nature in Tadami

On our way to the hot spring, we had another chance to see the amazing view of the mountains and the lake. How wonderful our nature is!

A traditional and special hot spring

A mixed hot spring just right next to a shrine!

Actually it was very common for men and women to bath together in the old times. So this is a place that you can experience the traditional hot springs. If you think this is a bit embarrassing, you can also rent your private hot spring too.

Relax yourself in the hot spring and pray at the shrine!

(getting in the onsen without staying at the hotel is fine)

Our last stop of our trip

After riding on the Tadami Line, we wanted to take a picture of the train too. From way up here, we could get a nice view of Tadami and the Tadami Line!

Your Journey in Tadami

These nice pictures marked the end of our journey! We hope that next time we can come back to Tadami in another season to see a different scenery.  How about you? Which season do you want to visit Tadami?  Do you want to get on the most romantic Tadami Line too?
