  • Easy walk to/from Kappa Bridge. Scenery along the Azusa river was so beautiful ard 3rd week of October, even though we visited 1-2weeks before the peak autumn.  more »
  • It's the starting point of Kamikochi hike route. We got off here and enjoyed the first spot. If you're willing to walk then you should visit.  more »

  • Very beautiful place withe amazing view on the mountains around. The round trip to Taissho pond from Kappabashi bridge takes about 2.5-3 hours including stops for pictures and to enjoy the view. There are restrooms along the way every 10-15 minutes. If you are not to loud there are good chances you will see monkeys. The lake is beautiful and peaceful and there is option to rent a boat.
  • The water is so clear that you can see the bottom of lake. Moreover, if you have time, you must row a boat in the lake. The experience of rowing a boat here will be memorable.
