That’s nice

Taisho Pond is in front of the hotel. It’s so magnificent in the night. It’s a little different from your usual days. You need to take a little warmer clothes. It’s not so convenient but it’s almost soundless there. Birds may sing songs between sunrise and snowing. You cannot reach to the hotel by a car. You need to go there by public transportations. Have a nice trip!

A quiet and peaceful hotel

You can stay at the hotel quietly as it’s a little far from the busy Kappa Bridge. The bus stop is in front of the hotel. You can get off from the hotel there. You can enjoy walking for about one hour from the hotel to Kappa Bridge. Especially in sightseeing seasons, the bus returns from Kamikochi will be very busy. I would recommend to get on the bus from Kamikochi Bus Terminal.

Only one hotel stands in front of Taisho Pond.

It’s the first hotel you will see when you go through Kama Tunnel and move towards Kamikochi Konashidaira. Also, this is the only one hotel where you can see Taisho Pond from the rooms. Its room rate is reasonable among the hotels of Kamikochi. It’s a little away from the famous Kappa Bridge but you can enjoy the view of Taisho Pond in a quiet environment.

A hotel to enjoy good meals

You can reach to Kamikochi Lemeiesta Hotel (ex. Kamikochi Shimizuya Hotel) by 30 minutes walking from Kamikochi Bus Terminal. The hotel has a restaurant where you can enjoy French cuisine made by Azumino’s fresh foodstuff. I recommend this hotel. You can also visit there for a day use of hot spring bath. Kamikochi will have the season of beautiful fresh green. Have a nice trip.

A nice view around the hotel.

The hotel is at Kamikochi. The views around the hotel – Taisho Pond, a dead tree in the pond, and Yakedake – are very nice. Nakantani Fall falls into Taisho Pond. Views of Azusa River and Hotaka Mountains will impress you. A route buses run from Matsumoto station of JR Chuo Line to Kamikochi.

A hotel to enjoy Kamikochi

A very nice hotel to enjoy the beautiful nature of Kamikochi. Wonderful views of clear stream, mountains, and woods in front of the hotel are very nice. You will have the best morning time looking at those beautiful views. Its big bath was very wide and very nice. They serve buffet but Kaiseki is better to enjoy relaxing dinner time. It’s a western style Kaiseki set course. You will have a good time drinking sake together.

Its location – at the foot of Kappa Bridge

I was excited as it was right in front of the Kappa Bridge. Views from the room were very nice. Myoujindake, Maeho, Tsurione, Oku-Hodaka, and Nishi-Hodaka were right in front of the room. It was a great view. Its dinner was a western course meal. It was very delicious. Their hospitality was also very good.

Walking along Azusa River and in Hotaka Mountains.

It’ll take full day long to walk from Taisho Pond and Myojin Pond. Views in which rock fishes are swimming in front of you and ducks play around you and sounds of birdsongs and babbling of the river will heal your heart. If you visit there in the season of autumn leaves, you will have nicer healing days at the foot of Japan Alps.

A quiet hotel. Meals are nice and rooms are wide

You need to walk for about 10 minutes to the hotel from Kappa Bridge, but the walk will be a fun as you can enjoy Alpine plants beside the road while walking. It’s quiet as it’s a little far from busy Kappa Bridge. Also the hotel is well soundproofed. Its room rate is reasonable but its dinner is Japanese tea-ceremony course dishes. You will also have a good relaxing breakfast. This hotel keep your luggage even before your check in. You can enjoy hiking without having your bags. You can enjoy day use of other hotels’ hot bathes.

A hotel close to Kamikochi Bus Stop

This hotel is in the rich nature of Kamikochi. You’ll feel quite fresh atmosphere of blue sky, divine mountains, and fresh green when you visit there in the season of young leaves. Its specialty is natural hot springs brought directly from the source. You can enter the bathes anytime you want. You’ll have a great time in the bath and watching beautiful nature. My recommendation is the plan of “12 dishes plus horse sashimi and Shinshu beef”. You can select Japanese or western room. The room rate for one night two meals is JPY 9,960 – 16,900 for Japanese rooms’ case and JPY 12,120 – 19,060 for western rooms’ case.

A recommendation

My recommendation is Kamikochi Hotel of Sawando Onsen. It’s a very comfortable hotel surrounded by beautiful nature of Azusa River Valley. It’s easy to access to North Alps or to Hida Takayam from the hotel. You will enjoy delicious Shinshu Beef dishes after you enjoy forest bathing and hot springs. Its room rate is reasonable. I would like to recommend this hotel.

A hot spring bath in the room.

This hotel is on the way to Kamikochi by a car. This hotel’s room rate is reasonable but it’s a decent Japanese hotel. It will be a good base to visit Kamikochi.
It’s a hotel stands beside Azusa River. Rooms are wide and the ones in the first floor have hot spring bathes. Also it have a big indoor bath and outdoor bath. Its meals are very good.
The hotels in this level are more expensive if they are close to Kamikochi. I think it’s a wonderful hotel if you consider its cost effectiveness.

Hot springs, delicious meals, and good hospitality

This hotel is close to Imperial Hotel. There are only two hotels that have hot spring bathes. One of them is Kamikochi Onsen Hotel. We, a couple in 60s, stayed there for a night.
I have a problem in my leg. When I told this to the hotel’s employees, they prepared another small bed for me. They served a chair when I was to wear shoes. They care their guests very well. Meals were also very nice. I fully enjoyed good air and relaxing time. I would like to go there again.

An old established hotel locates at the foot of Kappa Bridge

You will walk from the bus terminal to Kappa Bridge, you cross the Bridge, and then you’ll find the entrance of the hotel. You can see Hotaka Mountains from the room when you select a little expensive room. Many of hotels in Kamikochi are expensive but this hotel is reasonable. Its services and meals are not perfect but it’s a nice hotel for Kamikochi hiking.
