  • I ride summer gondola that can explore the slopes in summer. From the midpoint of the 820 m above sea level, Mt. yotei or it can be far away overlooking Mt. Usu (the weather not bad). Admire the panorama from the rest house cafe. Alpine plants are cute and bloom.

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.
