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.

“ Day trip in Kyoto ”

We had a lovely day with Hideo, despite the excessive heat and we walked 8 miles! We caught the festival parade, saw all the sites we had on our list and he offered us an extra one the 1,000 gates which we loved at the end. He had the day well planned out, and had a great place picked out for lunch. Thank you to Hideo for a memorable trip to Kyoto!

“ Good tours ”

We had two Hideo tours in Kyoto and one in Osaka. Hideo was well prepared for the tours with maps, tickets and printed tour plants. He coomunicated with me prior to the tours and put together these tours based on my requests. He navigated through paublic transportation system very well. His english is not perfect and sometimes it was difficult to understand him, but we gor buy OK. We wanted local cultural experience and got it.
