I had heard a lot about Taishoike so I had a high expectation. We walked from the Kamikochi bus terminal to Taishoike and walked back. The walk on both way, on either side of the river, was very nice, but when I got to Taishoike,...More

I stayed at the Gosenjaku Hotel there are many walks you can do , walking to Taisho pond is one of them. The walk follows the Azusa river , it is not difficult or strenuous , a great way to spend a few hours.

Took 7am bus from Hirayu Onsen BT, alight at Taishoike bus-stop. The sight was awesome and few people as it was early. Continue your walk towards Tashiro Pond and then stop at Kamikochi BT to confirm the last bus timing as it changes with season....More

This place was gorgeous. One of Central Honshu's gems. A truly mystical place although the crowds are large it is a place that induces one to reflect.

We stopped here for a short period for photo taking. The pond is surrounded by yellow coloured tree during this period and the mountain is covered by a bit of snow. Great for photos!

This is a very pretty lake, very blue with great views up to the mountains. The walk to get there is moderately flat and easy to do from Kamikochi in an hour.

I think it isn't impossible, but hard for your mother. You can take off the bus at last stop,near by KAPPA-BASHI.There is a beautiful walk along the river. You can enjoy them, using whellchair.
