Thanks Shot,

It's on Sunday April 27 Kamikochi officially opens this year. So how do you manage?

That means you'd need to take a cab to go through more-than-1km-long Kama Tunnel, the fare being 5K-yens one way if from Hirayu. If it's before the official opening day you are coming then I guess you could walk through it with a headlamp on, though. But maybe not once Kama Tunnel opens because of traffic...
