    Shame is a regrettable Taisho pond is no longer views of the past like has. In the eruption of Mt. yake is dammed into the year of taishou era "became a pond landscape trees got out from the pond in Birch white birch trees stood submerged in the pond. The Hotaka mountain range overlooking the pond and the scenic spot was rotted away the trees have fallen and now no one. I feel somehow annulled as a scenic postcard. Lying by the side of Azusagawa, tourist trail however this pond is another is I don't.

    In a one-day bus arrived early in the morning. Yet many people, consuming mist somehow looks beautiful mountain and pond is scary to them on and clear. Long time, I wanted to. I had a refreshing feeling.

    I went to GW on high ground Temple shortly after. Get off at the bus stop Taisho pond boat the natural way we walked to the kappabashi bridge. Rides to Taisho pond boat wasn't so long ago, but is very good. The contrast of blue sky time in the mountains snow and as sharp as and turquoise blue ponds was breathtaking. It is recommended. We have arrived at the pond at noon, the boat 20 minute wait. I think is going to check you can make sure to get the book.

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.
