Today when I was looking to see if autumn colors reached kamikochi already, I ran into a site that saya that there is a very nice foliage in Norikura now. I looked and saw it is reachable from Takayama, and when I looked what in Norikura I saw that there is a nice hike to Kengamine peak with great views. However the site was in Japanese and I used google translate so I am not sure if the foliage is near the bus station and Kengamine peak or somewhere else. Also, I am not sure if the views there are good or not (compared to doppyo peak which I saw you highly reccomended to some people).
So my questions are:
-Is there really nice foliage there?
-Are the views good? or is it better to stick to the original shin hotaka plan?
