4.7/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
Climb up for the striking views at Norikura Kogen, a highland area with a height of 2,700 m (8,860 ft). Formed by lava flow, the wide volcanic area features numerous caldera lakes and waterfalls you can discover by following the hiking map. Soak in the hot springs (onsen) or find a pond amidst the mountains and forests for a photo opportunity. You can rent bikes at the nearby resort town as another way to explore the area. Come prepared with comfortable shoes and an adequate wardrobe for changing conditions. To visit Norikura Kogen and other attractions in Matsumoto, use our Matsumoto trip builder.

  • It is beautiful in summer and autumn. High altitude, I think strong wind, low temperature. Weather permitting, can be seen also yarigatake

  • When we landed I can't enjoy the views because it was raining, but felt the taste of the air. Take a deep breath is where you'll want.
