  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Absolutely pristine. Great place to start your hike either towards Kamikochi or Yakedake. Taisho pond has a clear view of Yakedake, currently the only active volcano in the region. Looks like a scene out of Red Dead Redemption
  • Great views, lovely trail easy enough for our kids to walk.
