Mountain Cottage in Ogawayama, Japan

Contending for the title of the “greatest mountain hideaway,” the Mountain Cottage in Ogawayama, Japan is one of the most amazing retreats we’ve ever featured.

Nested between Yamanashi and Nagano, surrounded by nothing but massive trees and rolling hilltops, this area is one of the most popular climbing spots in all of Japan. And even if you’re not into climbing, there’s no better way to unwind than going off the grid, and connecting with nature. The little cabin in the woods was designed by Setsumasa Kobayashi (outdoor clothing and gear designer) as the perfect hideaway to put his outdoor gear to the test. The space includes a fully covered cabin to shelter yourself from the elements while a geometric rooftop dome lets you literally sleep under the stars. Across the deck, there’s even an indoor/outdoor bathtub, and a private fire pit just down the hillside. [Via]
