We booked direct with Kamikochi Nishi-ito-ya Mountain Lodge and had excellent communication from them including our dietary needs. We arrived from Matsumoto early in the day but the hotel were happy to hold our bags and provide a room to add extra layers of clothes on before walking. Our room was Japanese style but very comfortable and warm, we used the public bath which was possibly one of the best of our trip and the food at both dinner and breakfast was excellent. We were there just before they closed for winter and in the morning they had their first snow at resort level.

We stayed in two rooms at this lodge in Kamikochi for 3 nights during a 2 week visit to Japan with our daughter, her husband and their two young boys. The rooms, though not large, were comfortable, with ensuite toilets, futons on tatami mats, as well as some lounge chairs. It was very pleasant after a long hike to sit in our room looking out over the river. And in the evening it was very convenient to sit in the lodge cafe together. The dining staff were very attentive and helpful, especially when our daughter was not feeling well. The surroundings are just beautiful.

We had a chance to stay overnight in Kamikochi at Nishi Itoya in the month of June. It was raining heavily when we arrived which is very common during the month of June and July in this area. Therefore, we just relaxed and enjoy our stay at ryokan while waiting for dinner. The onsen is another thing we did during our stay. Dinner is served punctual at 7PM and it was very high quality of Kaiseki dinner. Room is spacious with 2 layers of futon bed. Toilet is shared and bath is public. Breakfast is also set menu with Japanese traditional food.

Luckily we had a perfect day the next day so we can hike to Myojinkan pond and enjoying Kamikochi at its best. Overall we really enjoy and heavily recommend this wooden lodge while staying Kamikochi.

My husband and I bookended our trekking in Kamikochi to with a stay at Kamikochi Nishi-itoya and could not have been happier. The accommodations were comfortable, the onsen was clean and well-maintained, the food was amazing (so many new things!), and the service was clutch. They even helped us find an English map and accepted our equipment shipment. We would happily return again soon!

We stayed for a night to have more time in the beautiful Kamikochi Valley and we were not disappointed! The lodge is very conveniently located - maybe 5 min. from the bus station. The Hosts are very friendly, there is a homey atmosphere. The food is absolutely brilliant, they even prepared a great vegetarian alternative. The Onsen is also a big plus. The japanese style room was beautiful. Before our Hike the host even took the time to give us a more detailed map and explain the way to the peak. We felt very comfortable in this lodge and would definitely recommend it if you want to spend more time in Kamikochi.
