Our Story

Rather than investing a huge amount of funds to build a luxury retreat from scratch that would require a high-end price tag, MRS Gunma chose to privately invest in two exquisite properties made with carpentry and wood that is irreproducible in our modern age, and spent seven years bringing them to modern standards for guest comfort without compromising the original feel of the estates. 

Our vision of sustainable tourism and regional development embodies the approach of using the existing retreat resources that Gunma has offered its neighboring city dwellers for hundreds of years and making the connections so they are accessible to our expat and inbound sisters and brothers. 

Gunma’s rich resources as a unique circular valley encompassed by three mountain ranges (somewhat like an upside-down pyramid) lends itself as the idyllic oasis of hot springs, forests, fruit orchards and artist’s ateliers that create the canvas for our retreats. 

Off the densely populated Golden Route tourist path that millions of Japan enthusiasts traverse, our region, now dubbed the “New Golden Route” is cracking open the doors to inbound and expat guests so they can fully benefit from the rich resources of our region, and we are the pioneers of this movement.

Having three decades of experience in the travel industry, MRS Gunma knows Gunma is not your typical tour route destination. The arts, nature and heritage of this precious region is to be sipped and savored like a fine wine. Just a 1 hour Shinkansen train ride from Tokyo, Gunma holds parallels with California’s Napa Valley, the wine country retreat of choice for Bay Area residents and San Francisco visitors.

Our vision is for expats residing in the greater Tokyo area to have an option for their weekend getaway ~ revive and return invigorated to engage in the demands of everyday life and work.  And, for our inbound guests, they can combine a slow-paced rejuvenating experience in Gunma as the main goal of their vacation, or combine it with tours of Tokyo or Kyoto to experience the excitement of Japan’s major cities ~ Like a Yin and Yang balanced vacation.
