I had three weeks before starting a new teaching job so I decided to take a break and get out of the hustle and bustle of crowded Tokyo. I took a job working as a receptionist at a British Style resort up in the Mountains of Fukushima. Its the real countryside of Japan with rice fields and the nearest town is 40 minutes drive away.
The area is full of nature, hot springs and hiking trails.
The resort I was working at is called British Hills. Its like a typical British village stuck way up in the mountains of Japan. Totally strange weird and amazing I think its just one more thing that has suprised me about Japan and the crazy things they do here. The resort offers culture classes and other activties for the guest.
There is the original manor house which no expenses has been spared it contains mahoganny wood throughout. Also there is a British Style pub and accommodation is all British style houses. You can enjoy tea and scones at the Ascot tea room while relaxing and enjoy the surrounding nature.
British Hills is located in in the mountains surrounded by forest, and nature. It is 1,000 metres above sea level in Hatori Natural Park,Fukushima.
British Hills has a similar climate to The Highlands of Scotland located and as it is 1,000 meters above sea level there is even the fog in the morning and the evening which is reminiscent of Great Britain.
It sprawls over 59.6 acres, you will find yourself in stylised mediaeval British town,
