It’s so beautiful and nice place for hiking and mountain climbing. The water in the river was super clear and ice cold. It’s really a good place for chilling in summer. We were here only for a few hours. Not enough to cover the all...More

The bridge is nothing special in it self although you get a very pretty background with the mountains. Spend your time walking up and down the river for some great walks, fresh air and beautiful nature. Kamikochi is definitely a great one day trip from...More

We were rather unlucky when we arrived Kamikochi because of the typhoon attack to Japan covering this part of the National Park. There were not much visitors around because of the windy surrounding and some parts of the Park had been closed for visitors to...More

This bridge is part of Kamikochi National Park. It’s worth spending as many hours as you can spare walking round this Park. The ponds, bridges and mountains are glorious and an added bonus is seeing the wild monkeys up close in their natural environments

We visited this touristy bridge in Kamigochi national park in Fall. The crowd of tourists flocked on the bridge, so please go early in the morning to get best picture with checking weather in advance for sunshine. Nearby is hotel/resthouse and souvenirs, and snacks' shops.

Did the usual touristy thing and got photos and selfies on and near the bridge. A nice spot to sit and relax or walk around. The water running underneath it was quite amazing, absolutely crystal clear from the melting snow up in the mountains.

You can drive to park at the spot provided for boarding bus to the visitor center in Kamigochi. It's the nearest point to go to Nippon bashi.
