About Yatsugatake Area
The Mt. Yatsugatake area, where Yatsugatake Grace Hotel is located, is just 2.5 hours by car or train from Tokyo. Mt. Yatsugatake (elevation of approx. 2,800m) is a mountain that runs from Nagano prefecture to Yamanashi prefecture. The region is surrounded by nature and is famous as a resort destination where you can enjoy fresh greenery and cherry blossoms in spring, refreshing breezes off the plateaus in summer, fall foliage in autumn, and lovely snow in winter. Nearby, you will find areas dotted with villas, such as Kobuchizawa and Kiyosato.
We are situated in an excellent location that is about 1.5 hours from leading destinations like Mt. Fuji and Karuizawa.
We recommend the "golden route" accessible by car, which takes you on a tour of Tokyo, Karuizawa, Yatsugatake Grace Hotel, and Mt. Fuji.
(Note that, due to the limited number of trains in operation, travel by train can take considerable time.)
The Yatsugatake area is also well-known as an accessible destination to visit while en route from Kamikochi to Tokyo.
About Yatsugatake Grace Hotel
Yatsugatake Grace Hotel is located at an altitude of 1,375m and is surrounded by nature, so you can fully enjoy the natural scenery Japan has to offer. We are the only hotel in the region where all guest rooms look out onto Mt. Yatsugatake. At night, the sky twinkles alive with beautiful stars. Each night, we host a starry sky observation session at the hotel, with many repeat guests. You simply must experience for yourself what Japan's night sky looks like here, away from Tokyo and the urban center.
Near the hotel is our directly-managed farm, where we cultivate fresh vegetables used in our cuisine. There are few hotels in Japan with their own farms, so customers rave about the fresh produce we offer here.
(We offer vegetarian meal plans. Please contact us first.)
We are here as a team to do our all to make your stay in Japan a memorable one.
If you wish to experience Japanese nature to the fullest, we encourage you to visit Yatsugatake Grace Hotel.
