621 2017/7/26 From Matsumoto to Takayama
I hope you can help me. We are going to travel with our child in August. He is 1 year old and we would like to find the most direct way to go from Matsumoto to Takayama. Is there any direct bus or train?
On the other hand, do you have any recommendation of a hotel in kamikochi? Thank you in advance for your help!

Note of webmaster: Hi Laura!

Thanks for your message. Yes, there is a direct bus from Matsumoto to Takayama. Here is the bus timetable in English.

As for hotels in Kamikochi, it really depends on your budget and how much "luxury" you're looking for. Here is a list of the hotels in Kamikochi that should give you a good place to start:

A good mid-grade hotel is the which is especially geared toward mountain climbers may also be a good option.

However, you need to be careful traveling in mid-August because it is the Obon summer holiday in Japan, and many places will be full or more expensive than usual.

Enjoy your trip!
