What to Expect

Kamikochi is one of the most popular mountain resorts in Japan. Kamikochi located in Nagano Prefecture is scenic highland basin above 1,500 meters above sea level surrounded by a series of high steep mountains called the Japan Alps. The area is designated as a Special National Monument.

The most popular scenic spot is a wooden suspension bridge called "Kappabashi Bridge" on Azusa River. We can look over the bridge at Hodaka mountain range. Azusa river is a highly clear river flowing down from Yariga-take.
The typical hiking course is between Taishoike and Kappabashi bridge. Taishoike Pond is created at the huge eruption of Yake-dake in 1915. I'm sure you can greatly enjoy forest bathing in small birds' chirping and seasonal wild flowers for about an hour. If you are lucky, you might come across Japanese monkey.

Furthermore you can make a round trip between Kappabashi bridge and Myojnike Pond for 2 hours. Myojinike Pond has clear water and near the pond you find Hodaka Shrine that local Shinto deity of Japan Alps is enshrined. When you cross Myojin bridge, you see Myojin-take. It is one of the photo spots in Kamikochi.

Even in summer it is about 23 degrees, so why don't you join cool hiking?
The period of opening of Kamikochi is from mid-April to mid-November.

“ I didn’t like it ”

Hides wasn’t a guide I expected. He was good in planning the tour and memorizing facts but I like talking to people. Hideo wasn’t open to a free conversation or questions.

Hideo:

Dear Julia Thank you for your message. I was very happy to guide you on New year. I'm now maing efforts to a free conversation. Thank you, Julia.

“ Incredible experience and tour guide ”

This was such a great way to experience Kobe and Hideo really did an excellent job, in addition to being friendly and easy to spend a whole day with. His knowledge of the area is superb and he speaks very good English. He really took care of us and even had printed information ready for us as well as a whole day planned that took us to many interesting places in and around Kobe. He was very knowledgeable of all these places and took very good care of us. He even booked us a local restaurant to try for a nice evening dinner. I would highly recommend any tour with Hideo.

Hideo:

Hi Sean I'm very happy to receive your message. I'm sure you enjoyed honeymoon tour; especially Kobe Bay Cruise and Kobe Beef (Xmas special course.) I wish you much happiness and success in the future. I hope to see you again. Thank you, Sean. Best HIDEo YOSHIda

“ Osaka and kyoto tour ”

The two days tour was really an amazing experience. We had a fantastic tour with our tour guide Hideo. He has a very good knowledge about all the places that we visited and showed us some pictures. He was able to answer all my queries about these places and his English was easy to understand compared to my previous guide. We used the public transportation which I really liked and which we had never used before in my previous visit. The overall price for these tours were reasonable and the payment was easy and simple. We also felt honoured to be the first Bruneian in his tour! Being a muslim traveller, he was able to arrange lunch and dinner for us in halal restaurants. He was also helptful and sympathetic to my husband since he has an injury to his leg. So there was one time of the tour th... read more
