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.
