Japan awoke to the concepts of mountaineering and trekking when Englishman Walter Weston began exploring the Japan Alps in 1891 and published a popular book on the glories he discovered during his lengthy hikes.

In 1933, Imperial Hotel, Ltd. opened a small hotel there with a luxurious assortment of resort facilities which immediately attracted affluent international and local city dwellers and members of the imperial family hoping to get out of the oppressive summer heat and bask in the beauty of the fresh mountain scenery.
