Kutchan-cho

4.1
Kutchan-cho's reputation rests on two things: skiing and potatoes. Ski resorts account for much of the land around the small town (along with potato farms), where the powder snow draws winter-sport enthusiasts from far and wide. Explore the modestly sized, but commercially thriving town center during your trip to Kutchan-cho, stopping in the many upmarket shopping and dining venues. In the latter, make sure you try gosetsu-udon, a noodle made using potato flour. Kutchan-cho is in Abuta-gun.

Where to stay in Kutchan-cho

A commercial and touristic center, Kutchan-cho offers a good set of accommodations, primarily close to the train station. The choice remains at odds with the upmarket nature of the shopping and eating venues in town, with some simple hotels and backpacker hostels providing primarily budget stays. This is because most visitors opt to stay instead in Hirafu, just south of Kutchan-cho. There you'll find a whole host of ski resorts, hotels, hostels, and guesthouses.
