Period of operation: late April – early November

Hiking and trekking for the whole family, including beginners

Differing from the more difficult treks of the Japan Alps and Mt. Fuji, the Yatsugatake Mountains offer trails for all skill levels, from beginners and families to well-seasoned hikers. You have access to several trails and peaks right from Oren Lodge.

Soak in Oren Lodge’s relaxing cypress wood bath

Located at an elevation of 2,330 meters and surrounded by nature, gaze at Mt. Iodake and Mt. Minenomatsume in the evening, and the starry night sky at night while relaxing in our semi-open-air, fragrant cypress wood bath.

The alpine nature of Japan without the crowds

Beautiful forests, remarkable wildlife and alpine flowers, and a glistening, starry night sky. Compared to more popular mountains in Japan, Mt. Yatsugatake is seldom crowded with hikers, allowing you to truly escape into Mother nature.

Nice rooms, cozy wood-burning stove, and great food

With our spacious rooms; cozy lounge with a warm, wood-burning stove; clean, flushing restrooms; and delicious meals with local dishes like our popular horsemeat hotpot, your stay at the lodge is guaranteed to be pleasant and comfortable.

Located in beautiful Nagano, at the center of Japan

The Yatsugatake Mountains are easy to access from Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, and Nagoya by train. Make it a stop when moving between Tokyo and Kyoto, or enjoy the mountains for a weekend trip. Yatsugatake invites you to get out of the big cities and into Japan’s wild nature!
