    Not to mention great panorama. If you go early in the morning of commemorative photos you can take. Across the bridge are walking on high ground a quiet stroll on the right bank of the Azusa River, a little.

    A landmark presence on high ground, so tourists and climbers on the bridge traffic is always. Early in the morning almost weren't, you can pass in a refreshing mood. Hiking is still walking early in the morning.

Where to stay in Kamikochi

Visitors to Kamikochi in want of a little luxury will need to book ahead. As a sought-after holiday destination that has resisted overdevelopment, Kamikochi offers a relatively small number of upmarket lodgings--just a few traditional ryokans in town, and others next to the hot springs across the mountainous terrain. Budget-conscious travelers have an easier time finding a place to stay, with some hiking lodges next to the rivers, as well as campgrounds.
