KAMIKOCHI
LEMEIESTA HOTEL

A resort hotel that opened as a hot spring inn in the early 1900s. We are proud of the free-flowing hot spring, traditional French cuisine, and guest rooms with a panoramic view of Azusa River and the mountains. This is the hotel where Walter Weston, the father of Japanese mountain climbing and author of the Climbers' Book that introduced the Japanese Alps to the world, also stayed.

The hotel is a little far from the sightseeing spots, but it is situated in a quiet place where you can experience a quiet resort mood.
