  • This place was gorgeous. One of Central Honshu's gems. A truly mystical place although the crowds are large it is a place that induces one to reflect. 
  • Birch has built the place's famous "Birch Avenue, Azusa, and Taisho pond" on high ground and speaking, but was dammed by the eruption, there are naturally spread to the world arrived at the forest pond, failed contestants from around the pond. It was a pond right see the mystique of natural phenomena. It is a picture-postcard spread tourism, got good reputation. Even my wife that used to travel about 30 years ago, enjoyed the walk this land and the Kappa bridge. However this may try to return, birch trees no longer have rotted away or is nothing. Is it a law of nature. It's rotten trees in the pond one day, rust away.

  • Go to Kamikochi and always get off bus at Taisho pond and ride on the bus from the bus station is the usual course. Taisho pond and open views Hotaka mountains is very clean, airy. That reduced the number of trees during the eruption of every time I go is not just the eruption of Taisho era more, sorry. Sheen on the surface of the Lake was covered with snow is had for the day was a snow day, Hotaka mountains, enjoyed the scenery.
