Kurumayama Highland, Chino

During summer at Kurumayama Highland, you'll wander meadows peppered with alpine wildflowers, providing lofty views across the surrounding hills and mountains. Standing at an elevation of (1,925 m), you'll need to take a chair lift to the summit, with the 15 minutes in transit offering 360-degree views of the hillside. From here you can take various hikes to the distinctive surrounding environments, including wetlands and primeval forest. Bring along some sturdy boots, snacks, as well as some warmer layers, as it can get chilly at these altitudes. During the winter months the area transforms into a ski resort with eight separate runs to suit all skill levels, and a play park for children.

Where to stay in Chino

Chino itself possesses a few accommodations, most of them unfussy hotels with onsite communal bathhouses (using geothermal waters, a real draw of the area), located close to the main train station. Many opt instead to stay at Suwa to the north, where lakeside lodgings are a little more upmarket and well maintained. Alternatively, visitors to Chino choose to stay to the east of the main city center, where hot spring resorts sit in secluded, scenic locations in the highland areas.
