Rest House Kamaike Bunarin-tei

Kamaike Bunarin-tei
This is the only rest spot standing next to Kama-ike Pond.

Kama-ike Pond is certified as a base for woodland therapy. It reveals itself when the snows melt, and, with the appearance of new greenery, photographers and hikers throng to Kama-ike Pond. In the season of fall foliage, it reflects the fresh, beautiful patterns of autumn on its surface. Bunarin-tei is the only rest spot next to the pond. It offers a variety of refreshments and meals. Local souvenirs are also available inside the shop. Be sure to stop by on your visit to Kama-ike Pond.

Message from the Facility
Set amid a land rich in edible wild plants and mushrooms, this eatery offers sansai-jiru (wild plant) soup from the start of June, kinoko-jiru (mushroom) soup in September and October, and a limited Bunarin-tei set menu in October. This is a popular item every year, sometimes selling out almost immediately. The dandelion coffee also earns many repeat visitors, including some who come from far away.
