Nature Images HD – Kamikōchi Japan



Allpicts.in – Kamikōchi Japan, Kamikōchi in Japan is mean the upper highlands. It is a remote mountainous highland valley within the Hida Mountains range. Located in the western region of Nagano Prefecture, Japan. The other name of this place is the “Northern Alps” of the Japanese Alps. Kamikochi is located on a wonderful Rural Japan route ranging from Matsumoto to Takayama City. If you are looking to get away from the city and explore the road less traveled, Kamikochi and its surrounding areas have much to visit.

Kamikōchi is bordered on its northern end by Mount Hotaka, and on its southern end by Mount Yake. The mountains and valleys were shaped in part by glacial activity, proof of which can still be seen in some of the most prominent peaks. This valley looks beautiful with many features such as Takezawa Marsh, Tashiro Pond, and Myojin Pond. The water temperature is cold, even in the height of summer. Other features include two camping areas, a number of hotels with western-style or traditional style, a tourist information center, souvenir shops, and a post office.

Today, Kamikochi is famous to international visitors as well as to the Japanese. Every autumn, a number of shrine festivals called “Ofune Matsuri” are held across the Azumino zone to give appreciation for the crop. People celebrate with boat-shaped floats parade to commemorate the Azumi tribe, a seafaring people who fished for a living. The most famous one is held at Hotaka Shrine in Azumino City (Sep. 26 – 27). At Myojin, the Zen-like pond and shrine form the backdrop for an amazing annual festival where real boats are still operated.
