A place which must visit during the Autumn season... beautiful!! I saw the monkeys which I've never seen jn my country
Kamikochi was the highlight of my trip. So many wonderful memories. I felt very fortunate to see the snow monkeys - these wild monkeys live here within the national park. Be aware that many of the trails take a fair amount of time - but are worth it. I went in autumn and it was stunning. The foliage was more... More
Beautiful landscape from ponds, woods, mountains and animals. The Mt. Okuhotaka is the 3rd highest mountain in Japan. You can see the awesome mountain covered with snow almost everywhere in the nature trails. We started our journey from the Taisho Pond as most people do. You can have a beautiful photo of the mountain perfectly reflected in the water there.... More
I am not much of a hiker, since I don’t really like to walk that much. However, this place is amazing. I didn’t do the mountains, only the small strolling paths, which each of them is like 4 to 7 km long. I truly enjoyed the morning and evening walk. Oh yes, bring some DEET if you want to survive....

Lovely nature trail, beautiful views and monkeys add to the fun.. Good place to get away from main city, but don't think you will be escaping the crowds. Beat enjoyed as part of an overnight trip so you can get away from the crowds. I very much recommend a visit to Matsumoto which is en route - delightful streets and... More
I was on a tour to Kurobe Tateyama Alpine Route from Nagoya where a 3-hour free time at Kamikochi was included in the tour. Well, of course 3 hours were not enough to enjoy all the wonderful nature there. But, I managed to walk from Taisho Pond to Myojin Pond and then to the bus stop near Kappa Bridge within... More
Kamikochi is definitely one of the must visit places in Japan. It is scenic, admission is FREE and a cool relieve from the hot summer. It is one of the best hiking spots. We took the Nohi bus from Osaka (1625 to 2140) from the bus stop near the 7th exit of the Higashi Umeda station. We bought our bus... More
I have been there three time and enjoyed it so much It is like a secret garden hidden in the Japan North alps The water the trees and the rocky mountains with snow caps are in so good combination to form a picture once seen will never be forgotten.
I went to Kamikochi for a day trip and here are my thoughts: - buses and cars go up to the entrance point, so you it's easy to start your trek - everything is well organised: you can get all the necessary information at the tourist information, the tracks are well marked and you can leave your luggage at luggage...

I went there from Matsumoto by train then by bus early in the morning. The morning view is the best because we could see the peaks clearly, the pond still calm and the best part is that we could take picture without too much people in it :).
