And, it has a jungle onsen. Which is obviously a brilliant concept. But it gets even better: The jungle onsen isn't just a steamy greenhouse full of jungle plants and warm sulphuric hot spring baths, it even has a SLIDE. Too many capitals, I know - but really, a stone slide into a hot spring bath?? In a jungle? Without going to an actual jungle, I don't think it gets much better than this.
Why? Because the bees pollenate the strawberry plants. 'Bees are the key to good strawberries', according to the owner of a fruit farm in Kyushu, where a single hive of honeybees is used to pollenate each greenhouse, and they are able to harvest their strawberries right through from December until May.
The fruit farm also had an adjoining shop/cafe/restaurant, serving unlikely seasonal-fruit-filled dishes such as persimmon pasta and apple pizza, all served amidst the scent of warm apple pie baking in the background.
