Very nice place. The rooms are excellent, Japanese rooms can accommodate 5 people. The services are excellent. Very convenient for us to stay a night before we continue the trip from Tateyama to Kurobe.
Good location, direct access by the bus.

The food was great. Very nice Japanese dinner provided. Great and stunning view outside the hotel. Easy to follow the path for trekking.

Highly recommend his hotel for other travellers. The hot spring is nice. Not a big one but enough for the guests.

I paid 36,000 yen for two people for one night , breakfast and dinner included, booked through booking.com.

The location is in an isolated spot (only one other building across the road) at Midagahara, on the bus route between Bijodaira and Murodo.When you get on the bus please tell the driver you are going to get off at the Midagahara stop which is 50 metres from the hotel.

Although I booked a twin room, we were upgraded to a larger family room with 4 beds facing the panorama and the sunset ie west.Rooms on the other side overlook the bus stop!

The room fittings were a little old and the beds Japanese firm but extra wide singles.A small modular bathroom including toilet.

WiFi in the rooms was a little slow at times.

The two dining rooms have panoramic windows.Lunch selection is very limited, expensive and not good quality.We should have bought lunch supplies from Toyama.

We were allocated the second floor upmarket restaurant for dinner .It was multi-course fixed Japanese menu and ,although I am adventurous, there were many things I did not want to eat.Unusually, there was a small buffet for dessert.Breakfast was a buffet in the ordinary dining room and I found it to be very average.

Staff were helpful and all had English including one with native speaker level.

The boardwalk around the hotel was enjoyable.The views were obscured when we arrived at 1pm but cleared later in the afternoon.

The hotel was nearly full.

Highly recommended as an overnight break along the alpine route.

One of the most scenic dinners I have ever had.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with panorama and sunset view on the west.

Once the rooms are ready, they will let us check in at about 2.20pm instead of strictly waiting till 3pm. There is a snow slide infront of the hotel and 3 other snow areas to take photos of the mountain ranges. Beautiful.

It may not be the best hotel, but Midagahara offers a great scenery and great walk out into the mother natures. It is located in the mountains area which simply allows sufficient time to leisurely stroll around the area. The resturant serve great dinner and traditional japanese breakfast!

Pros:
Staying on the mountain allowed us more time to leisurely explore various trails without rush.

Staff was very helpful and tried their best to accommodate our requests like early check in, locate the group hiking tour when we were 30 seconds late after they group departed.

Room was spacious with 4 single beds and a lot of space to walk around.

Dinner and breakfast were included in the half board package. Dinner was traditional 10-course Japanese meal and they served us different kinds of cold & hot meals with fish, salad, sashimi, hot pot, beef stew, dessert buffet. Husband and kids were not impressed with the food as they are more used to western food but it was fine for me. Staff at restaurant was very attentive and refilled our tea/ water all the time, and kept bringing us more food when we finished what we had on the table.

Buffet breakfast was also good with a mix of both western and japanese food: sausage, omlet, bacon, fish, rice, pickles, miso soup, corn soup, salad, cold cuts, fruits, etc.

Don't miss the hot bath. Not onsen water but still good.


Cons:
At JPY86,400/night, it is very expensive. But we also understand the scarcity of choices and the difficulties to transport resources up the mountain. The hotel up at the top at Murodo is even more expensive but there are also more different trails for one to explore.

There are a few short trails nearby Midagahara but one can finish within 2 hours. Else not much to do.

We wanted to do the famous star gazing. When we look out of room window we could see quite a few stars. But by the time the hotel organised star gazing activity began, they started showing some videos on the development of the place in Japanese (which we couldn't understand). We ventured ourselves outside to watch the sky and it was too cloudy to see anything already.
