N-28 Kamikochi Trekking (April – November)
The Mountain Resort, Kamikochi
W. Weston, a British missionary who came to Japan, praised Kamikochi, the Hotaka mountain range in his book “Mountaineering and Exploration in the Japan Alps” in which wrote about his experience. Until then, climbing mountains had always been thought of as an ascetic pursuit, suited to priests and monks, or for life such as hunting. His achievements, that made the mountain climbing widely known as “leisure” and made Kamikochi famous, are still widely praised as “the father of modern Japanese mountain climbing”.
Today, 1.2 million people visit Kamikochi every year.
Kamikochi is a precious treasure of Japan that has been given two titles, “Special Place of Scenic” and “Special Natural Monument” because of its beautiful scenery.
Currently, only two locations in Japan, Kurobe Gorge and Kamikochi, are certified. (as of 2019)
Kamikochi is also the starting point for full-scale mountaineering such as Mt. Hotaka and Mt. Yari, but this tour only walks on flat areas so that even beginners can enjoy trekking.
