About Us

Being the comfortable and relaxing place for all who enjoy mountain-adventures.

We think YAMAGOYA, which means “mountain lodge” in Japanese, needs to be comfortable and relaxing place for people who enjoy hiking, trekking, and climbing. At the same time, the lodges should not to be too fancy and convenient as our life in cities.
Although technologies have improved our quality of life so much, but almost nothing has not changed in mountains and nature in terms of the hardness or toughness.
That is why we keep making efforts to be not too easy but better and more comfortable for all hikers and climbers.

Amenities and Facilities

Thank you in advance for your cooperation

  • Please refrain from doing laundry in the lodge. Although you may feel that want to wash your cloth after long hike, you are not supposed to do laundry in mountains where not equipped with water supply and sewage system. Additionally, of course, please DO NOT hang your wet item in dorms, otherwise the floor would be soaked.
  • Toilet manner. Since there is no sewer in mountains, composting toilets are installed in our washroom as other mountain lodges do. The toilet utilizes a biological process with aerobic organisms which the system doesn’t need much water. The thermophilic composting bacteria thrives at warm temperature (heating with generator’s power) and break down the waste completely. However, toilet paper or any kind of trash would prevent the biological system, so please put toilet paper into the bin instead of throwing to toilet.
