A highland resort hotel conveniently located for exploring Kamikochi, right in front of its most popular tourist spot, Kappa Bridge.

Mountain Resort Hotel

Kamikochi is one of the most picturesque places in Japan. Kamikochi Hotel Shirakabaso is located right in front of the Kappa Bridge, one of the central spots in Kamikochi. The hotel is only a five-minute walk from the bus terminal and is also close to Taisho Pond and Myojin Pond, making it a convenient base for exploring Kamikochi. On a clear day, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Hotaka mountain range.

Various guest rooms suit every occasion, including rooms with a spectacular view of the Hotaka mountain range and refined Japanese-style and modern rooms.
The seasonal cuisine that makes the most of the rich bounty of the mountains is also an attraction. You can enjoy sweets that will help you recover from a long day of travel and Shinshu's delicacies in the restaurant, café, or on the open terrace while appreciating the scenery.

The adjoining store offers a wide range of products, from souvenirs to climbing supplies and medical supplies. Also popular are the hotel's specialty sweets, juices, and jams made from fruit grown in Shinshu.

Nature tours by professional guides are also available. The "60-minute Nature Guide" is offered four times a day for 60 minutes (1,000 yen for adults, 500 yen for children). The guide will show you the highlights of the area around Kappa Bridge. Many visitors find walking around the area while given explanations more enjoyable. Other courses available depending on the season include the “Early Morning Guided Walk” to listen to the chirping of birds, the “Myojin-ike Nature Trail tour” to walk around a power spot surrounded by an old-growth forest, and the “Night Walk.”
