Guesthouse Raicho – the one and only guesthouse in the Norikura Kogen (Highlands), Japanese alps with Onsen (Hotsprings). At Raicho, we believe in helping our guests re-discover themselves through the experiences we could offer during their stay: encounters with the dynamic wilderness of Japan Northern Alps and interactions with other guests from all around the world, each with their own beliefs, perspectives, and experiences that they could share. Hence, our concept A Place to Restore Yourself.

We provide minimal service for your stay at Raicho, starting from 3,500 yen/night, so that guests can enjoy their activities at Norikura and Kamikochi and the pride of Raicho, Onsen, at their own time.
