Kamikochi Onsen is a modest, friendly hotel with good hot spring facilities in a really stunning location. It's a calm, flexible option, offering both traditional Japanese rooms, and those with international-style facilities.
Located by a river in the picturesque mountains around Matsumoto, the scenery takes top billing and every window frames tall trees, blue-grey hillside and snowy peaks. Go walking in the hills, then relax in the hot spring baths.
