上高地景色

Kamikochi Myojin Shrine in the early morning is very magical. The best way to enjoy Kamikochi in the early morning is to stay overnight. Kamikochi Myojin in the early morning begins with the sunrise over Mt. Myojin, and you can see the morning mist of Myojin Pond before breakfast.

The real name of the Mt. Myojin peaks is Mt. Hotakadake.


The inn is also very convenient as a base for hiking and mountain climbing in Kamikochi.Staying at the inn gives you more time for your climbing itinerary, making it easier for beginners and female climbers.

Myojinkan's room rates are inexpensive in Kamikochi, but the inn is well-equipped and offers good value for money. The ratio of male to female guests is equal, which is unusual in Kamikochi, making it a popular place for men and women of all ages.


It takes 45 minutes from the Kamikochi bus stop to this inn. The appeal of Myojinkan is that you can stay there empty-handed. Let's stay at the Kamikochi Myojinkan of your dreams

"Away from the city, in the midst of nature. This is the inn for those who want to feel the atmosphere of the mountains."
This is the only inn in Kamikochi that is affiliated with the Wild Bird Society of Japan.

This inn is also an affiliated inn of the Japan Alpine Club.

 

The Myojin rock peaks of Mt. Hotaka, like the Matterhorn, are waiting for you.
