Kappa Bashi, Kamikochi
(4/5 based on 220 reviews on the web)
Walk across the wooden suspension bridge of Kappa Bashi for spectacular scenery of mountain peaks and the rushing river below. In the heart of Kamikochi valley, the bridge also offers access to hiking trails that wind through the untouched forested scenery. Enjoy a vista of the magnificent Hotaka mountains from the 36 m (118 ft) long and 3 m (10 ft) wide bridge. Information and visitor centers are onsite, and a three-story cafeteria serves up refreshments in the tourist center. A visit to Kappa Bashi represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kamikochi itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • From on high-altitude climb on foot, the aim here. That's certainly skillful people in mountainous areas aiming at hodaka here. Is the origin of the name famous novelist late on Akutagawa Ryunosuke's "novel: Kappa" in that there was a reason. There is a Memorial Hall to the right of the bridge, was the classic traveller here across the other side shore in the Azusa River now walk in front and back. A hot spring along the way will bring their own towels and good.

  • As a symbolic presence on the Highlands course. Is the spot of the Hotaka mountain range, Azusa Memorial taken back. I want to experience peaceful Kappa bridge when the place can get very busy during the tourist season, but stayed on the high ground of hotels and camp sites, early in the morning and evening.
