Taisho-ike Hotel

Azumi-kamikochi, Matsumoto, Nagano-ken, 390-1516, Japan

This small mountain resort is perched on the rim of the brilliant-blue Taisho Pond. The lobby, restaurant, and bath have large windows with excellent views of the breathtaking landscape. Opt for the spacious Western-style rooms, with their comfortable beds and soft, puffy quilts. The Japanese rooms are not as nice as those found in a ryokan. All rooms have a private bath, but there is a shared Japanese bath as well. Rooms at the back, without a view of the water, are ¥3,000 to ¥5,000 less. Only Visa and MasterCard are accepted here.

PROS

  • lovely views
  • comfortable Western-style rooms

CONS

  • Japanese-style rooms aren't recommended
  • bit of a walk from the center of Kamikochi
