• School Excursion/Access

Make some memories in the wide open nature of Shinshu

Yomase Hotspring is located in the middle of Kita Shinshu, surrounded by the Shiga Highlands and the Five Hokushin Peaks, in an agricultural area that grows a lot of fruit.

In winter, school groups come for skiing, and in summer there are experiential outdoor study classes. Students can have fun studying while getting close to nature.

Hotel Selan supports groups to ensure that each student has a good experience and good memories. It is our wish that everyone’s lives can become richer from their experiences.
