Where to stay in Kamikochi

Visitors to Kamikochi in want of a little luxury will need to book ahead. As a sought-after holiday destination that has resisted overdevelopment, Kamikochi offers a relatively small number of upmarket lodgings--just a few traditional ryokans in town, and others next to the hot springs across the mountainous terrain. Budget-conscious travelers have an easier time finding a place to stay, with some hiking lodges next to the rivers, as well as campgrounds.

  • This place was gorgeous. One of Central Honshu's gems. A truly mystical place although the crowds are large it is a place that induces one to reflect.  more »
  • We stopped here for a short period for photo taking. The pond is surrounded by yellow coloured tree during this period and the mountain is covered by a bit of snow. Great for photos!  more »
