We spent a three nights here during our Japan trip as it was recommended to experience a ryokan while we were here. The hosts are welcoming and friendly and the food was superb, a wide variety and well prepared. The staff who served it were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and well presented. The only reason I give...

Firstly please be aware there are two parts to the hotel; the "dorm-style" rooms and the hotel rooms. This review is about the hotel part. Visiting Kamikochi is an expensive experience; you can't use the JR pass and it costs 4550Y on the private train and bus. Then all accommodation in the Park is expensive; we paid 57,000Y (so ~$570)...

Stayed at a single Japanese tatami room and it was great! Dinner was served in your room & breakfast in the dining room at a prearranged time. The staffs were very hospitable and communicated well in English. WIFI & public Japanese-style mineral bath available for use. Recommend.

This lodge offers hotelrooms and dormitory beds. I stayed in the dormitory, that had a choice of japanese or western beds. In the lodge is also a public bath (an onsen). Nothing feels better after a long day in the mountains and soaking your body in the hot water. The diner is delicious and more than enough. The bar offers...

Love Kamikochi. Love Nishiitoya Senso. The onsen was fantastic after a hike. The employees were so great. My meals were so tasty. I stayed there for four nights and the meals were different each time. And the raw fish was my favourite, and I did not like fish at all before I came to Japan. It seems the girls in...

The food here was particularly good - they are very strict about meal times, and request that everyone who is staying at the lodge who wants to eat do so at the same exact time - so don't miss it! The only downside was the public bath pool water seemed to have not been filtered in a while, and the...

Typical Japanese Ryokan with it's own segregated Onsen located right in the middle of the park. We got stuck coming into the Park late and the employees of the Ryokan came in their car to the park entrance to pick us up. Food was amazing and the hiking superb! Even got to see the famous Macaques monkey wander through the...

Kamikochi is one of my favorite places in Japan, I've been there 4 times in the past 5 years, but this was my first time staying overnight. Really glad to have chosen this accommodation. The hotel's location is very near the Kamikochi Bus Terminal, about 5-min walk. The hotel is located along the river, so the view is great! There...

My wife booked us at this lodge for 2 nights. The location is very convenient and allows us to take walks along the river and the vicinity. The reception and service of all the staff was excellent; they make us feel very at home. The meals especially the dinners come with a wide spread and taste very nice. We enjoyed...
