Tokusawa Lodge -.- Kamikochi

In Kamikochi the hotels are usually expensive and the cheapest places to stay, except for the campsites, are the lodges. We stayed at Tokusawa Lodge, at Tokusawa on the other end of the Kamikochi valley a two hour walk from Kappabashi. It was like an European chalet on the outside and the rustic inside immediately warmed up to me. The room was like any ryokan and dinner and breakfast were simple but plentiful. Electricity was only available between 16:00 and 21:00 but everybody was so tired that nobody really minded.

To reserve you'll have to contact the Tourist office in Matsumoto, see their webpage.
