Fodor's Review

This rustic alpine lodge is owned by Tokyo's legendary Imperial Hotel, and the service is so exemplary because the staff is borrowed from that establishment for summer. In the lounge, low wooden beams support the beautifully crafted ceiling, while a central hearth add a warm glow. Guest rooms have sofas and gorgeous woodwork, and some have balconies. Western and Japanese restaurants are on the premises. You can see the red-tile, gabled roof of the hotel from Kamikochi's bus terminal in the center of town.
