Kamikochi lies around 2-3 hours west of Tokyo in the heart of the Japanese Alps. Its name translates to ‘above the high ground’ and it is a popular place for longer treks into the Alps and mountaineering. Kamikochi also offers easy walking trails along the river which can be completed in a day.
The scenery is truly magnificent, with its beauty haunting you long after leaving.
