About Kamikochi and walks

It is my first time to Kamikochi. Where should I walk?2020-05-11T19:02:54+09:00

The 2 major courses of Kamikochi are “Taisho Pond ~ Kappa Bridge” and “ Kappa Bridge – Myojin Pond”. If you are on a day trip, depending on how much time you will take, the standard options are to take either of the above courses, and if you are staying over night, many people take both courses, one on each day.
For the highlights of both courses, please check out the Guide Course page.

Are there areas where children can walk?2020-05-11T20:53:58+09:00

Please select a route according to the distance your child can walk, because you cannot get on a bus in the middle of the pathways. There are more bathrooms and benches for you to rest in the “Taisho Pond ~ Kappa Bridge” course. If you cannot walk long distances, we recommend you to take a walk around the Kappa Bridge. Just about 15 minutes walk away from the Kappa Bridge, you can find “Gakusawa Swamp” with a beautiful view. Also at the camping site, there is a stream, and you can touch the water there. Please note that it is forbidden to catch bugs and fish in Kamikochi.

Yes, the pathway from Tashiro Bridge ~ Kappa Bridge on both sides of the river is accessible. For other pathways, there are areas with unpaved paths and steps. Please contact us for more details.
