I want to stay in a hotel in an unbelievable location with spectacular views!
Finally you’ve made it to Japan. What fun is it to come all the way just to stay in a normal hotel, right? Here, we will introduce a hotel with views that will make you gasp and say, “I can’t believe my eyes!” This hotel, located high above the clouds, is the one and only, Hotel Tateyama!
Hotel Tateyama is built at an altitude of 2,450m on the breathtaking “Alpen Route,” where you can still find pure white snow from spring to early summer in the months from April to late June. Known in Japan as “the resort closest to the stars,” staying at the Hotel Tateyama will make you feel like you’re visiting a planetarium with the overwhelming view of the starry night sky.
Wait a second. Do you mean to tell me that I don’t have to climb a mountain to reach this place? It is particularly for these times that YOKOSO JAPAN has specially designed a convenient travel tour for all those coming to Japan! In fact, it’s incredibly easy to get up there.

These animals are wild and timid, so watch them stealthily from a safe distance and try not to scare them away!
