Kamikochi Night Tour

Parks Overview Parks Overview

Experience the grandeur of Kamikochi under a canopy of stars

The rugged beauty of Kamikochi, a remote valley of towering forests and snow-capped mountains, is as awe-inspiring at night as it is during the day. This guided tour starts at Kamikochi’s iconic Kappabashi, a pedestrian suspension bridge spanning the Azusa River. If weather permits, lie back in a clearing and stargaze.

Experience the stillness of the forest after dark as you peer into a pitch-black sky illuminated with glittering stars that stand out against the silhouette of the Japanese Alps. On cloudy nights, engulf your senses in the sounds and scents of the valley as you wander the forest with a guide.

Please note that the program may be canceled in case of inclement weather, frequent wild animal sightings, or other reasons.
