Camp 33 beside Lake Yamanaka is ideal for those driving up from Tokyo and looking to crash for a night or two with minimal headaches. The private cottage is set up with everything the guest needs, from bedding to barbecue; there's WiFi and a sound system, and seating out on the terrace; this is a hotel-type experience with great access to the great outdoors of Yamanashi. Rates during the high season are nigh usurious but that’s not the right time to visit, anyways! Slide in during the regular season (June to September) or, better yet, during the off season from November to March when rates are even lower and the mountains are just as pretty.
