Full-day Snowshoe Tour in Kamikochi

Experience the winter landscape of Kamikochi on this full-day snowshoe hike. The hike itself is a relatively easygoing, round-trip course to Kappa Bridge and back. We will pass the frozen Taisho Pond and the beautiful snowfields at Tashiro Pond before taking a break on the snowy white riverbed of the Azusa River. Kappa Bridge will be right before your eyes and if you look up, you will see the peaks of Mt. Hotaka towering above. Turn around and you will have a wonderful view of Mt. Yakedake. Another highlight of this snowshoe tour is that it lets you escape the summer crowds and experience the true nature of Kamikochi.

*Note: Winter restrooms are set up at Taisho Pond, Tashiro Pond, and Kappa Bridge.
