Where to stay in Kamikawa-cho

When visiting Kamikawa-cho, tourists usually opt to stay in nearby Sounkyo, a small "onsen" resort village where you can indulge in hot spring bathing and find accommodations with a private bathhouse. As options are scarce in the town itself, you might want to choose lodgings in Ashikawa, which boasts a number of mid-range hotels. You can also stay at one of the basic establishments near the train station, or find a room in a mountainside guesthouse.
