They also have a newsletter the Tengu Times which you can get from this page. It has great local information, vegetarian recipes and all sorts of information.
Located in Hidaka City where the Kanto Plain meets the mountains, we sit over looking the Koma River.
How to get here:
Our nearest Station is Koma, about an hour from Ikebukuro. To get here take the Seibu Ikebukuro Line to Hanno, and then transfer to the Seibu Chichibu Line. Koma is the second stop from Hanno. Don't take the Red Arrow Express to Chichibu because it will go right by us.
From Koma station...
Turn left after exiting the ticket gate and find your way to the small set of stairs hiding in the corner of the lot. Follow this little path till you come to the rail crossing. Cross the tracks and go straight, past the large road, all the way down to the second light. This curves to the right so keep going until you cross the bridge over Koma River. We are the big red American style barn on the right.
