No this isn't a fairytale. This is Ryokan Sangaa magical inn with the most gorgeous onsens (natural hot spring fed baths) where @thedenizenco & I hosted our second annual wabi sabi inspired photography retreat. We called it home for a week & my heart aches for these paths already. Every other place pales in comparison.
