Minakami-machi

(3.1/5 based on 1,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: baths, winter sports, sightseeing
Perched beneath the foothills of several soaring mountains, the town of Minakami-machi provides a picturesque stepping stone from which to explore the dramatic surrounding scenery. Buzzing with ski activity in season (December to March), the town draws Tokyoans looking to escape the crush of city life. That said, Minakami-machi remains relatively undiscovered among the international tourist set, despite its three surrounding mountain peaks. In the warmer months, Minakami-machi vacations still offer a wealth of options: from canoeing in the national park, to the dozens of onsens, you can get out into nature at your own pace. Customize your holiday with our Japan trip builder to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Minakami-machi

Depending on the time of year, you may head straight to Minakami-machi's snowy slopes, staying in one of several well-equipped ski resorts; if it's the warmer seasons that have prompted your visit, you'll still have plenty of choices. Proud of its traditional Japanese culture, Minakami-machi boasts lots of Edo-period ryokans set in secluded tranquility, with no one to be seen for miles. A Minakami-machi trip wouldn't be complete without a visit to the onsens, so consider staying in one of several resorts that put them right at your doorstep.
